About the Image(s)

I took this one at Centennial Park in Atlanta, GA several years ago - like maybe 2004? After cropping, I did some basic changes with Photoshop.

What a fun image! Your cropping brought the focus of attention on the boy and the fountain. And his red pants made the scene really pop. I think your processing brought out the color and contrast as well. Nice work!   Posted: 07/05/2021 11:40:33

This has fun and action written all over it, not a bad combination! As Mike points out, the red pants really add to the image, and the wall and greenery in the background bring out the water columns. The soft box effect of the ambient light is so much better than if it was a sunshiney and contrasty day. Great job!   Posted: 07/09/2021 16:48:15

Very pleasing image, as it was already mentioned. I also notice the beautiful S curve design on the ground, which compliments the action of the boy and water. Your processing, however, is what makes this picture.   Posted: 07/09/2021 18:55:48

This is a fun image and tells a great story about heat waves. It would make a great newspaper headline image. Excellent job at cropping to ensure the subject matter was plain and clearly understandable.   Posted: 07/10/2021 09:16:42

Truly a fun image. The cropping is spot on. Delightful leading lines, starting with the tile, then to the s curve of the concrete and then up the shooting water. If I can be picky, I'd like to see the blue pole and the gray building at the top cloned out.

I'm kicking myself for not submitting my second choice, which was a little boy playing in a mud puddle!!!   Posted: 07/20/2021 16:34:18
