    Well look at that! A picture in our pool that isn't from Karl, Redlion or myself. That is such a unusual occurance that you would deserve a comment even if it wasn't a pleasant shot. Which it is.

    I like: The colour, the haze, the dream-like quality (all very strong). The expression of childlike wonder on their faces. The movement (hands, hair, waves, birds)

    I don't like: The wing-tumour coming out of her head ;)
    I realize it adds something to the depth and "real-ness" of the shot, but I finds it still detracts more than it adds. Honestly, I'd just clone that one right out. Contrary to popular opinion, though, I would keep the bird on the right of the frame. I kinda like it.

    Thanks for proving your Potential

    Please excuse the lateness of my reply. We didn't realize someone else had found our group!


    P.S. Ronanj's comment is in French. He is essentially saying that your photo is very charming and portays a joyful moment, but that it's a shame about the bird in the foreground (the one that's partially cropped, I think) and perhaps you should remove it.

    Ahh, you're made Galveston, TX look much better than it really is.

    Good job.

    I personally hate that city, been there many times :-)

    Really good picture. I'm not quite sure if I like the composition or not (with the half bird on the right and the empty space on the left), thus only 9/10.

    Score 9/10 (from the Score Me! group)

    A few things that don't work. Like the wings sticking out of her head and the bird on the right.
    Other than that. fantastic
