    I have not done this sort of thing yet but have to do it one day as I like it.
    I to think if you could have cloned out the lady on the left it would have made a nicer shot.
    But overall its is a nice shot and has got me thinking of doing the same soon.

    I don't hate selective coloring when there's a good reason for it.
    Not really seeing a good reason here.

    Plus, the selective coloring for the cut off person on the left makes no sense and confuses as to why the selective color was used in the first place.

    I really like this image. A beautiful child submerged in wonderful directional light from late day light. She appears to be dancing and is clearly enjoying herself. She is what is important but at the same time the artist offers volume in a B&W, mundane background which electrified her emotional state. She is well protected by a slight hint of a motherly figure. Well done, excellent emotional level not easily noticed.

    I understand the attachment to the photo as it is, but really; if you missed her in the frame, then you probably should just try again.

    When you post a photo in these galleries, it's assumed that you wish to have the photo critiqued. You may have attachments to this for various reasons, but as a photograph it has some flaws that people are trying to bring to your attention. You can disregard these suggestions if you wish of course, but I think you would benefit from taking your own advice regarding the open mind.

    It sounds like your either trying to convince yourself or just making excuses.

    The younger one is a cute kid; I can't tell about the other since there's nothing more than an eye and part of an arm. It's a memory keeping snapshot, but not much else, IMO.

    No need. I'm not that interested in the snap for an explanation (re-read the first sentence in my post).

    Just a thought ... If one has to explain a photograph then the photograph cannot stand on its own merits.

    I'd be interested in hearing your thought process.
