Very dramatic and captivating image. I totally enjoy your creativity. This image speaks to that "child within", allowing the viewer to connect with that beautiful life-enhancing force of imagination. Well done! Lynn #5489972

Andrea, Eivor, Isabel, Lynn and Patrick thank you for the great comments. I'm glad you liked the title as well. It does take some mental gear turning to come up with these but I like writing and words as much as making the images. Perhaps you saw my earlier entry entitled "Twilights Theater" in which you can see the young man who is flying the kite you see here. For this one, as you can barely see the lines that connect to the kite at web resolution, I thought it really is a whole different kind of image. It really was a "theater" as I observed this going on through my viewfinder that evening as they ran around on this soccer field chasing, catching and releasing it over and over again as darkness fell. #5493189

We had such movie "Two who had stolen the Moon" with twins paying main characters. Now one of them is our President and the other was PM. Most of society hates them so I guess your photo would be very popular in my country :D
It was my first thought connected with it :)
I really enjoy those vivid colors and strong contrast :) #5494899

Thank you Natalia. That's unbelievable about the movie stars rising to those positions only to be hated. Perhaps I'll take some of my prints to Poland for an Art Show one summer. Maybe if "The Moon I Behold?" is really popular it would pay for the trip. I'll buy you a new camera................ Phantom dreams.............. #5534550

I would like to give an EXTRA thank you to everyone who has commented to this point as this photo has just received an EP and I know these comments played a role in that. #5534562

Yes I guess you also have someone called Arnold Sch. as governor of California? :>

They are hated not because of the fact that they played in one move as kids, but because their point of view is taken from Middle ages and simply they are not right people on a right place :) At least this is my opinion :D #5537294

I stumbled across this scene at a park near where I work. Two men and a boy were up on an elevated soccer field trying to fly this airfoil type kite as the wind and light were fading. The camera was hand held. I tweaked the image just slightly with iPhoto to brighten it up a shade.
