About the Image(s)

I got this one while the cheerleaders were practicing their routine before the game. This little one is the cheerleaders Team Leaders child and she was watching and copying the moves all the cheerleaders were doing.. was pretty fun to watch.

This made me smile. Young children always seem to be captivated by older children (especially older siblings) dancing or doing something closely related. You have captured the moment where this young girl is trying hard to imitate the older girls. Nice work. You might try cropping a little tighter on the left side of the image.   Posted: 08/05/2019 16:57:37

I agree with Richard. The interaction of children is wonderful. Phil, you were very alert and aware to catch this image. Well seen! Initially, the fact that the cheerleader is blurry bothered me. However, after several visits to your photograph I decided that the real subject is the little girl in the background.

To me the girl behind the cheerleader is a bit disturbing. I think it would be worthwhile to carefully remove her shoes, legs, etc.

I love this "story.' The child off to the left, although she is small, is the subject here, her stance and the look on her face tells the tale. I didn't particularly mind the blurriness of the cheerleader since it indicates movement but the girl behind the cheerleader is distracting and the writing to the L of the girl could be cropped. Good eye Phil to catch this   Posted: 08/07/2019 06:39:32

Great idea; the little girl does catch my eye. I would have removed the cheerleader behind the main cheerleader and sharpened the main cheerleader a little.   Posted: 08/15/2019 11:56:54
