Great capture, lighting and (also) a beautiful ballerina. Congratulations!
Excellent photo. Also beautiful colours and framing. Congratulations!
Masterly captured, and a photo, truly, telling a story about people. Congratulations!
Well done, dear Byron_MCD. Low angle perspective and your excellent framing, masterly visualise a "silent" catastrophy.
Very well done! Congratulations!
The sweetest photo (and title) in this challenge. Congratulations!
I liked this photo at most. Excellent shot and with the correct "dose" of motion blur. Congratulations!
Nice picture and well framed. Keep on the good work, Steve!
Steve Throndson: One of my favorites in the challenge. You've captured the essence of speed here - and a friendly expression too.
Thank you, dear Steve, for your kind words.
Very well done! Keep on the good work!
A picture telling a story... with this man's figure , the colours and the framing. And also with a very successful title. I liked it very much and voted for it. Congratulations.
Excellent shot ! A soul is emerging from this photo.
A well deserved winner! Not only for the excellent photo but also for carrying and takining pictures with a mediumformat camera at the "top of the world" and that, some 30 years ago. Congratulations.
An excellent photo! But -as I can see- already three times a winner.
I 'd like to thank all the kind people, who liked this photo and voted for it.
This one was my favourite. Very well done!
Nice shot and on the "decisive moment". Great lighting too! Congratulations for the deserved win.
A great photo! I think, it clearly depicts the NEED of almost all the children in Africa, in a simple but also breathtaking way. Was my favourite and I gave it my 5-star vote. Congratulations!
Wildbegonia: I find it quiet disturbing in the sense that is an image of children glorifying guns. At a time when some countries breed child soldiers, children this age, in a normal world should be playing football,video games, playing a music instrument . I send a complain to host and feedback. Proofed it wnt nowhere. There is nothing in this image that invite us or this children to fall in love with Lebanon. My local restaurant is owned by a lebanese and in its walls displays stunning 1970's and 80's photos of this beautiful country, its cedar forest, sea and Roman sites. What is in this image to love about? As for the photo's craftmanship, does not reaches the journalistic quality at least should it have.
Thank you for your comment. This photo was taken almost 15 years ago on film (hence the not "journalistic" quality) in Hama Syria (in this time a very peaceful country). The quality of this photo is to show these clean and well-dressed boys (obviously living with their parents, who care for them) in front of a huge wateremill , which is a landmark of Hama and Syria. Perhaps in your country, there are not boys anymore playing with TOY-guns (albeit some om them play with REAL ones in their schools), in other countries (like my country, Greece for example), boys still do. As far as I know, in the last 50 years in Greece, not even one boy or teenager used a real gun for killing someone.By submitting this picture, I included also a comment, which, I think, makes my point of view clear and also the reason to post this photo.
Captured the right moment. Great photo!
