LOL Very cute! I like how everyone's looking at everyone else. Fun picture! I personally don't care for the uber-contrast...I think I would like it yet more if it were slightly less contrasted. But otherwise I like it a lot! : )

Thanks :)

midday, cloudless sky + crappy lab scanning = uber contrast :(

I need to get my own film scanner but every time I have the $$$ I end up buying a lens :D

Ack, it sucks to have a great subject, and less than ideal conditions. LOL Well hey at least it's going for a good cause eh?

BTW, why the sad face?
Reply
:iconcherry-flavored-rain:
Because, the boy on the bike wishes he could ride in a stroller again, while the boy in a wheelchair wishes he could ride a bike. I find it to be a little sad, but that's just me. >.<

I just saw the "physical moment".

Hmmmm.

You gotta look for that stuff! I think conceptualizations like this one make for good, meaningful shots. Again, nice work! =]

I always admire if somebody is able to catch an easily understandable, but not casual story in one photo, great job! =)

I'd love to know if the situation is built-up or spontaneous? :O

It was very much spontaneous, although I had mentally noted all of them prior to the photo. I was sitting on the bench...two of the three kids on the swings in the background are my twin boys :D

Thank you!

Contrast was a little bumped by the scanning, which had the unfortunate side effect of blowing the highlights :(

No. 4?! WOW!

And I really love this shot! Great contrast, repeating themes, and most of all, a variety of ages. GJ

Yeah, major shock...I took my kids out to the Taipei Children's Museum this afternoon, came home to check my messages, and wondered how the **** I got 70 messages in just a couple of hours. :D :D :D

Need to thanks `Obsidian-Fox & ^estudio for this one :)

Love the composition, the harsh lighting and the contrasting textures.

Thanks! That's why I love mechanical RF cameras...zero shutter lag As soon as you see the moment you can shoot it. :D

Lighting was direct sunlight, midafternoon, which is always contrasty. Contrast was a little bumped by the scanning, which had the unfortunate side effect of blowing the highlights :(
