    maybe u could shoot from the opposite site, to see the boyz eyes???? mmmm?
  • Untamable Horrific 10y

    Great shot. But you should take one closer and get a glimpse of what he is watching... and another one of the opposite side, with is look of curiosity...

    But I shall not diminish this one.

  • Jim Skea 10y

    Yes, I like this. I think the light floor helps make the boy stand out and I like the way the position of the legs adds to the perspective (though this could have been made even stronger). The 50/50 horizontal split works surprisingly well here too.

    Would have preferred this shot at a different time of day
    and it seems a hair undersaturated
    but it's such a great moment that
    the more I look at it,
    the less the above seems to matter.

    he he, i saw the same picture taken in the 50's in Paris.
    Nice up-to-date...
    Saw it also during the live aid concert.

    This looks like I would have saved it even without the boy. What a great background, fine colour and texture. I think the claustrophobic framing is great: the hole is the only way out of this picture, and boy, would I like to look through it.

    love the wall, texture, but find the kid, shoes especially, oddly unsettling. doesn't add up for me, sorry.
    maybe more texture on the floor (tad darker, more contrast) would 'even out' the image for me.

    Nice cartier bresson-ish moment, let down by lifeless contrast & less than wonderful framing.

    I'll do the honors.

    The more I look at this, the more I like it. It has all the elements of a keeper.

    It would make a great book cover.
