I like this shot Monika...the brick and
cement block really make it. #34089

Murry Grigsby

Very creative seeing and well done, Monika. #93873

Debbie S.

Nice perspective, lines and shadows Monica! Great composition. #93906

Duane Carter

This is just an all-around wonderful photo, Monika. Composition, light, detail and the little girls expression.
This is just my thought, but I like the implications of the contrast between the girl, (her fragileness) and the columns (there strength). Like you have between a child and parent.
Duane C. #93943

William C. Raco

Very artistic composition.
Kate's serious expression works well with the mood of the photo.
Excellent image.

Thanks for the wonderful comments, everyone! I took this photo yesterday, while Kate and I were visiting the University of Washington in Seattle. It was the second time when we went there together, but for us itís never enough ;-). I have some plans for the future, Iím thinking about taking some Infrared photos, but I need less people than there usually is on week days. Just busy days for all students (I hope they have breaks on weekends days? ;-)
Once again, thanks!

Duane, your comment made me proud of my photo! You see much more than me ;-). Thank you for your wonderful comparing!

Gary, Terry, Connie, Mette, Duane, Murry, Dolores and Gerda Ė thank you very much for all your wonderful comments! They brightened my whole day! Making the finals is always very pleasing for me, but making them with some portraits of my kids is much bigger and more important for me. Photographing people had, has and will be the biggest meaning for me. I wish I could improve my work and make my photos more interesting for viewers.
Once again Ė Thank you!
