Love it! Frolicking children make life fun:-) Funny how a dreary and cold day can seem so warm b/c of a carefree child, well done!

The thing that grabs me about this image is that her clothes are the only true black in the image. It's a sort of reverse of the usual trick of making the subject the brightest part of the image to get the viewers focus. Congrats on the top 10, the effect works marvelously.
Get her a P&S.

This was taken on the same day as the Head Wear challenge. Nadine_Vb is so smart and I'm thrilled there is actually someone who recognized an image of MINE. Wow, I'm honored. Thank you paulbtlw, I took a look at njsabs' work and I appreciate the reference and she is now one of my fav photogs. And no, Ja-9, she did not catch a cold. In fact, she would run right back to me to take a look at the image on the back of the camera (preview screen) to see how it looked. If she wasn't happy with it, she would insist that we shoot it again. All at the tender age of 5. Lord help me when she's 15!!! Thanks for the comments folks! Kim

Oh this is so gorgeuous, I did'nt see it during voting, but would've given you a 10, I don't know how anyone can give this a one or two, how mean. Well done. i've added it to my faves.

This looks familiar. I dare to believe this is a photograph made by ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21_F.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21_F.gif', '/') + 1) . ' kvickrey.
I love the complete setup around this: the environment, the border, the black&white... Some parts of the photograph are leaning to the pinhole effect. I have handed out some tens in this challenge and yet another 10 is coming out your way

I'm going through the entries, stopping at those images I feel have had the benefit of an unconventional eye and dwelling a little longer to try to see and appreciate what you saw. This is one of those images.

Positives: I love this - puts me in mind of an ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21_F.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21_F.gif', '/') + 1) . ' njsabs piece (though I know it isn't). Great colours, great restriction on the light, fabulous composition and even the somewhat unsubtle vignette works.

Critical stuff: Perhaps a tad more sharpness on the child might have improved the image or it might have just interfered with the diffused look.

Overall: Great work.
