Way under appreciated - it was in my top 5 of the challenge. The smallness of the image didn't bother me at all; I was less sue about the heavy black border - at the top it is almost crushing down on the children at play, which is at odds with the title and subject. That said, it throws up an interesting feeling of dissonance - almost reinforcing the idea of the fleeting nature of childhood, and perhaps of joy, as the realities of the adult world way down on us. Ok, getting far too philosophical, let me just say that this is a photo that works for me!
