I've just been browsing trough the DPC-archives and noticed this outstanding image again. Somehow I forgot to mark it as one of my favorites, so I just did that right now :)

Great composition on this!
04/21/2002 07:55:00 PM
jumping for a picture ... priceless!
04/21/2002 05:13:00 PM
i like this.
04/21/2002 05:10:00 PM
Too bad the fence shows, love the color
04/21/2002 11:02:00 AM
Very cute shot. Though the little blip on the bottom left is distracting.
04/21/2002 07:16:00 AM
Nice... luckily the sky is perfectly clear so the girls really stand out. Why didn't you crop out this 'thing' in the bottom left corner?
04/20/2002 08:44:00 AM
This is a fun picture, stopped and clear. Object in bottom left pulls me away from subject.
04/20/2002 05:17:00 AM
an amusing session!! I like it
04/19/2002 05:44:00 PM
I like this one very much
04/19/2002 12:21:00 PM
Excellent implied travel paths, Great smiles!
04/19/2002 10:10:00 AM
This is very nice. I would have tried to get rid of the wood in the lower left as it detracts from the picture.
04/19/2002 01:40:00 AM
they sure can! nicely executed
04/18/2002 03:07:00 PM
Great idea, but who was the center of attention?
04/18/2002 08:21:00 AM
If you cropped this left to exclude the fence it would be perfect. Cute kids.
04/17/2002 11:39:00 PM
I like, but get rid of the wood fence in the lower left, or show more of it
04/17/2002 09:01:00 PM
I like your framing
04/17/2002 06:57:00 PM
Now THIS looks like fun!! However lower left corner is distracting - great photo.
04/17/2002 05:36:00 PM
Man, this is very close to being a great shot. The (rock?) in the lower left corner detracts form the shot. And too bad the girl in front is not a little higher and a little more in focus. Otherwise a really nice image!
04/17/2002 03:55:00 PM
Very obvious motion :o) Great composition, but I can't help but feel that a little more background would help give a sense of depth
04/17/2002 03:37:00 PM
Nice, sharp picture with good colors and contrast. It manages to convey that feeling of childish exhiliration. I wish whatever is in the left hand corner could have been cropped out of the picture.
04/17/2002 02:52:00 PM
Nice blue sky. This almost has a 3D effect. Cropping the lower left would have made it better for me.
04/17/2002 01:53:00 PM
Excellent framing!
04/17/2002 11:02:00 AM
It looks like a commercial. The vivid shirts against the blue of the sky!
04/17/2002 10:53:00 AM
i would have preferred that thing on the lower left cropped out as I'm sure people have already said. originality of this pic is relatively low but well shot.
04/17/2002 06:12:00 AM
Cute kids and adequate composition.
04/16/2002 11:59:00 PM
Very nice shot! I can feel their joy!
04/16/2002 06:34:00 PM
The expression on their faces add a lot to the shot. Bottom left corner should have been cropped out.
04/16/2002 05:45:00 PM
would be perfect without the things in the bottom left corner. (but i love it anyways)
04/16/2002 05:20:00 PM
First time I've ever seen a trampoline shot I thought was exceptional, only problem here is that the girl closest is blurry while the other one is in focus. and if I wanted to be extra picky I'd say the fence in the bottome left is distracting.
04/16/2002 04:26:00 PM
Now that is motion!! They look like they are really having fun. As constructive criticism only, you might consider turning down the post processing a little. Still a fine effort.
04/16/2002 04:01:00 PM
I really like the composition here -- nice that the girls' shirts match as do their grins. Could it have been cropped a little tighter to remove the fence (?) in the lower left corner?
04/16/2002 03:42:00 PM
Wish the object in the lower left had not been in the picture, but a really nice shot!
04/16/2002 03:14:00 PM
cuties! i love the contrast with the blue sky. great picture!
04/16/2002 03:05:00 PM
Great photo. Lively!
04/16/2002 12:37:00 PM
This photo has got it! I think it's perfect, except for the part of the trampolne in the left-bottom corner. But I guess you didn't cut it cut out because that would destroy the whole compostion.
04/16/2002 09:35:00 AM
Probably my favorite picture in this challenge. Great colors, great exposure, great subjects, great angle, great hair movement, great idea for same color shirts and yellow against blue skys always looks great.

My only little nit-pick on the image is the stuff in the loser left hand side but I can see that if you cropped that you would lose the lower girl too much so I understand.

If that stuff was gone I would have given a 10 but this is still my favorite shot.
04/16/2002 08:27:00 AM
Fantastic shot, great colors and stop motion is conveyed on 2 subjects.
04/16/2002 07:30:00 AM
I like this one. The kids look like they're having so much fun, and I guess you would have too! I would like to see the focus on the girl in front to see what effect that would have. Shame about the post/fence in the bottom left too, but i'm sure you tried to get rid of it. Good job
04/16/2002 06:18:00 AM
Good job capturing these guys. What is that in the corner?
04/16/2002 03:15:00 AM
Stopped motion always looks so nice against a clean blue sky!
04/16/2002 12:24:00 AM
Wow--looks fun!
04/15/2002 10:01:00 PM
Nice blue sky, looks like they were having fun being your subjects!!
04/15/2002 10:00:00 PM
Good focus. I like the girl in the foreground, too... I think it would have been boring if you would have only had the one up in the air.
04/15/2002 06:36:00 PM
Definitely stop motion.
04/15/2002 03:27:00 PM
Great photo! The only thing I would change is to crop the left corner. The photo shows debth and the girls are so cute!
04/15/2002 03:22:00 PM
Great shot! Good rich colors and sharpness. One thing I would change is either get more of the fence(?) in the shot or none at all.
04/15/2002 02:37:00 PM
great picture! expressions and exposure as well as timing are great. i could do without the fence in the corner though
04/15/2002 02:11:00 PM
Good interesting pic and well stopped.
04/15/2002 01:15:00 PM
Cool pic. Is this a combined picture?
04/15/2002 11:34:00 AM
Very good. My favorite of the photos of people in the air. I'm impressed.
04/15/2002 10:59:00 AM
Fun picture - the wood? in the lower left is annoying - I'd clone that out for non-challenge use. Great expressions
04/15/2002 10:15:00 AM
The reason I like this picture is the colors, you use opposite colors and the photgraphic structure is also good.
04/15/2002 09:25:00 AM
Good action shot, but would have been better without the distraction in the lower left corner
04/15/2002 09:09:00 AM
I love this photo. The hair on the girl in the front of the image is great! The color and contrast on this photo is exceptoinal. The only improvements I could offer for this photo are that the girl with the 'coolest' hair is just a tad out of focus, and I'm not sure what your framing options were. The 'airborne' girl looks great but I would like to see more of the girl at the bottom of the picture. Including more of her may have also included more of the wooden fence I see in the lower left. Changing the cropping a little may have helped take care of this. Very nice work!
04/15/2002 09:05:00 AM
Excellent. Meets the criteria perfectly, but more importantly it is well composed, good color, sharp focus and full of spirit. A real Eye grabber. Did you consider cropping it vertically to take out fence post?
04/15/2002 08:55:00 AM
Nice picture, very happy girls.
04/15/2002 07:46:00 AM
Awesome shot ! I think a shot of the girl in the air alone with that beautiful sky and no fence would have been a 10 !
04/15/2002 04:21:00 AM
Lovely facial expressions motion stopped beautifully
04/15/2002 12:47:00 AM
Wow. This picture is just outstanding. Since we're all hunting for flaws, I'm sure you'll get comments about the fence post. But congrats on such a great shot.
