    Thank you so much for your votes and comments - I guess this was a shot we could all relate to.

Go for it Mepo- when I get my new camera I'll really give you a run for your money

    Even without the extra info, I find this an evocative shot. It certainly pulls up memories. I think most of us can write our own story here. One of my favorites.

    Well composed, good sharpness and well exposed. Suits to the topic. In my favorites.

    Just the use of the word calculus in a photo challenge puts it high on my list.
But there again an excellent phoyo with a good composition.

    I was actually taking a photo of the building facade from further back, which I was going to convert to B&W, but when I started to process the shot, the boy in mid-step really appealed to me, so I cropped it considerably. Had I been focusing on him to begin with, a shot opening the door would have worked well. I tried popping the colour a bit, but it seemed to be overdone. (JPEG limitations). Unfortunately, vegetation in November in this neck of the woods never adds much.

    I wondered why you titled it "Doomed" until I read the extra info. Fits the category really well so it's my number 1.

    Love the way the right foot is just off the ground - the last step :-) Good composition but it needs a bit more 'snap' to the colours.

    Well without the explanation it still works and is effectively composed in a stock photo sort of way. I don't think the vegetation helps much.

    Good framing and focus on the school. However, I think the soft focus on the boy detracts from the overall impression. Also, I can't help but wonder if you took another photo as he opened the door, which may have added more interest to the shot. Still in my top ten though.
