    I think I'd rather be in Spain right now. Looks like a fun time.

    Good set.

    You might want to consider bumping up the contrast a bit.

    Dan, could you tell me why you like it? A few people told me that this picture is good but they couldn't express themselves why...

    mentos - that one is probably my favorite too. The boy's expression, the depth of field and the composition (busy surroundings) 'pull' the boy out from all of it. It reminds me of a moment when you're lost in thought and feel like there's absolutely nothing going on around you, no matter how much actually IS going on.

    Neither can I, Alex.
    Perhaps it's the child's expression and/or the dof and/or the way you've framed it and/or ... I really don't know.
    It's just that I don't usually try to 'analyze' an image. The response happens within me and maybe I haven't grown yet to express those feelings in words.
    Or maybe I don't want to dissect an image. At this phase where I am at right now, the 'magic' is gone when we put our thoughts in a couple of words. To me it's like limiting the potential of that particular visual.
    It's sort of like defining 'love'. Photography is an emotional experience for me.

    this series looks amazing! i love them all! personally, i find it strange (in a good way) when i take pics of people's lives who i dont know. i quite like how i will never know a thing about them and yet i have a frame of their life.
