    I love the story almost as much as the child! Forget the placing, this is a beautifully candid photograph!

    Looks like some lovely child has just received brand new crayons. I find the background distracting and would like to have seen more of her face.

    forgot to mention, she got to keep the crayons!

    - Jade O. - I had this idea for about ten days, but lacked a subject to hold the crayons! 90 minutes before the deadline, I resorted to begging a neighbor to let me borrow her daughter who could only come out to the driveway. In my haste to avoid shooting the trash in the yard, I ended up with the "tone change decapitation". The flaw I noticed was that there was a big crack in the driveway that ran right through the crayon (which I blotted out a bit). But at least I got the entry in with 0 seconds to spare!

- rafinmelb - I originally planned an over the shoulder shot, but her smile was so cute, I decided to change my angle a bit. It would be nice to see more of the smile, but on the other hand, it leaves more to the imagination.

- Lo - Ahhhh, you got my joke! I'm a closet comedian.

    What a great shot from an unusual angle. I love the humour of showing coloured crayons in a B&W photo.

    A potentially terrific image. Two things that prevent it, I think I'd like a little more of what I suspect is a great smile, and the background does not quite work with the two surfaces being distracting.

    Candids can be hard and candid portraits even harder. There is a spontaneity here which is compelling, but also a little motion blur, an exact profile which adds drama but loses some expression, and a nice two tone diagonal in the background which also unfortunately chops exactly at the neck. Despite all sorts of reservations, the human interest wins out and makes my top ten.
