I picked a high ISO to get that grainy look you often see in local papers. These were just a couple of kid I ran into who wanted me to take their picture.

great photo, headline too long

Very nice headline. My kids say the Zero shirt and Etnies shoes prove this wasnt a set up. Nice candid! 8

Those kids don't look like they're protesting much. One is up in the air, not up in arms...

Great shot, excellent angle, great shot and title for the challenge. Nice touch taking the extra time to desaturate the picture.

Good shot, might benefit from a shorter headline, also I can imagine that this would look better in color, but B&W does fit this challenge. Nice work.

Good capture. Nice shot. It works, but the kids don't look very "up in arms" to me.

A good match for the challenge, and a well caught shot...

Lack of contrast and don't see much news here 5

If you had left it at the first part of the headline this would have been a more convincing journalistic effort. As it is, the two boys shown here don't exactly look like they are 'up in arms'. They are cheerful and showing absolutely no signs of rebellion. Also, this looks like a private parking lot not a public street so once again, the photo doesn't support the headline. I would say this photo has a tenuous connection to the challenge, at best.

Photographically, it is okay but not great. Despite the action of the skateboarder it has a flat, static quality. Shallower depth of field seems called for to separate the main subject from the boring and distracting background. With the extremely deep depth of field you've used here there is no distance created between the visual elements.

Sharper focus on your subject would improve this photo - otherwise well done.

Would've tried and taken a shot without the cars in the background. Cars are kind of a distraction.
