This ones just for fun. These kids were waiting for the parade to pass by. When I looked at the picture I thought it was as though she had been listening to this same old story from this same old man for many years :)

Hi Karen,
You captured an interesting mood on these two kids, waiting, with such expressions!
Very good lighting and sharpness.
Excellent skin tones and very natural poses, especially the girl!
Great humourous capture, neatly presented.

Hi Karen
You really nailed it here. These two make a great shot. I wonder if they will remain life long friends?

Hi Karen,
I love the story this tells..

Upon opening it I know what they where waiting for....

The light is really nice.. Not harsh like one would think during summer.... I do like the colors.. but wonder what it would look like in BW.... Also I really think the crop works really well to focus on their faces.


Hi Karen,
Superb framing in shallow focus. I like the expression and fine details of this stunning image.

Hi Karen

Excellent use of selective or differential focus, to isolate & emphasise the 2 fg children. Good sharpness & diffused light with a neutral non distractive bg. Tfs! Have a nice weekend!

Bonjour Karen.
Une excellente composition pleine de vie et de bonheur.
L’image exprime parfaitement son joie.
Félicitation pour ce bon cadrage.
Bonne journée.

Hi Karen,

This is such a cute shot and the title goes so well with it.

I really like the candid pose and i always think that these shots come out the best when ur subjects arent aware of being photographed =)

Lovely colours and nice Exposure - u have also managed to capture the shot from a very eye catching POV =)

Such natural expressions form the kids complements the titke and makes this shot complete =)

Great work !!!
