    Ganz suss :)
A great contrast between your daughter and tough bikers and just he right angle. Well done on your win here.

    Congratulations Franz. I couldn't see this anywhere but in the top spot.

Jun 22, 2010
    Many many thanks to you all! I'm very happy!
For me this theme was one of the more "serious" photography themes, making me nervous. It's an easy fun to be at home and play around with the camera - but to go out and take pictures of people in the street... phew! ;-)
The more I'm happy you like my shot!
And many thanks for your nice words about my youngest. Beautiful mother -> sweet kids, that's the trick. :-D

Billy, how did you read this Warsteiner sign? I didn't notice it... Great detection!

    Congratulations a worthy winner

Jun 22, 2010
    Glückwunsch Franz!!!! True lovely image, well done!!!! :-)

    Congratulations - This shot makes me smile every time I see it. Love the turned up hat, the perfect posture and the intensity of the look. What a doll!

Jun 22, 2010
    Congratulations. Nicely done. This was one of my favorites.

    A wonderful shot for your daughter and a wonderful childhood memory preserved for all time! She'll appreciate this a lot as she grows older. Congrats on your win but your true prize is the subject of your photo.

...A big big kiss to your daughter...è proprio una bambina stupenda! :-)

Jun 22, 2010

Cheers :-)

    Oh my! I didn't know she is your daughter. What a doll! This was my favorite. So cute! Congrats on your #1 spot.

    Hi friends! Thank you all very much for your nice comments!
My daughter loves ice cream! (Michael, once I would like to have a glimpse into that dossier, that you have about us all :-D)
She loves it that much, that I did not have to buy a second one... the cone broke off. The upper part fell on her arm and then on the stair. She threw the lower part of the cone onto the first step and kicked it to the ground with the words: "for the bird" :-D Then she picked the ice cream up again and went on watching the arrival of the bikers... Ugh! But so lovely!

Jun 21, 2010
    Like it - did the little girl like her ice cream?

Jun 21, 2010
    Lovely image for sure... everything looks perfect, the low angle, the cute girl with the ice cream, the action in the background, even the BW works very well!
Great job that is my #2 pick, and could have been as well my top one... Prima!!! :-) (I'm guessing this is obviously in Germany... can't tell exactly if from Una or Franz, could be easily from any of you. Perhaps Franz, due to the "Warsteiner" sign in the Brauerei, more Nordrhein-Westfalen than Bayern... but that is a weak clue anyway :-) this challenge is great for guessing! :-D

Jun 21, 2010
    :-) ....Slurp
Wath a candid shot!...Great composition too!
...It's a pity so many elements are in focus...I hate small CCD!:-)))) First place for me

Jun 20, 2010
    I love the contrast of the bikers and the innocent little girl, with the punctuation of spilled ice cream. Even the little bird adds something. A fine street shot and in my TT.

Jun 20, 2010
    OMG she's so cute - especially with the bikers in the background. It looks as though an ice cream cone was sacrificed in the shooting - there must be a story there...

Terrific shot - My #1

Jun 19, 2010
    fantastic shot. top honors from me. love the little bird there too. nice going.

Jun 19, 2010
    In my top 5 first time though. Super composition and an interesting comparison between motorbikes and ice cream. I think the interaction between these two saves this from just being a portrait of a little girl. The girl is unbelievably cute. Does she like chocolate-covered cream cake too :-) I am wondering about the discarded cone near her feet and the melted ice cream on the step. Would this be from one of her two brothers or did you have to buy her two cones to finish your picture?

    as the good book says the last shall come first and lo in this case it has.my no1.
the girl is wishing I could have a bike, but heck rasberry ripple is ok for now.
the bird is waiting for the leftovers
the bikers are well being bikers
an excellant result and this one stood out on first look of the thumbnails
and in original Black and White

    To me this is a classic street shot. It isn't just a shot of a street, but a capture of a particular moment, something to engage the viewer. Therefore my number one shot.

Jun 18, 2010
    Great subject caught perfectly (such clarity) and a terrific background. B&W works for street

My no. 2 (looks like melanija's work but whoever this is this is a great shot!)
