    Perhaps he's just trying to read the up-side-down back-to-front writing!

    That is written upside down for those who fall down head first. Those brick are really hard...

    I think you got this shot all wrong. My edit improves it, IMO.

    Alis,

    I know youngsters can be a bit of handful at times, but did you really need to go to these lengths to protect the public from him? He doesn't look THAT dangerous

    Re: Cautiously watching falling objects

    Thanks, everyone for the comments. I like all the other suggested versions.

    Just FYI, this is in front of the daycare, they were working on the rooftop and they stop working in the afternoon and in the morning when kids are in front of the building. And at those times, everyone is in the "closed" area. I think the yellow color is what they see not the words on the ribbon (although they would have a hard time to read it upside down).

    By the way, this is perhaps the first time his mother thought I have "overexposed" him for the shot

    Great picture Alis.
    Very nice.
    The stripes are very important in the composition but the one he tries to read is the most important in the image.

    Did you think of it before or was it spontaneous ?
    Something like: "There is a nice shot to be done with that stripe. Stay son, don't move..."

    No, it was not planned. Actually, I have another shot within a few second of this one, in which his mom is whisking him away and sort of yelling at me!

    I don't think I can get a release permission for that one

    You see, there are not many pictures you can fix by rotating them 180 degrees

    Actually, as you mention it, there are quite a few. I do reflection shots and as a lot of them are reflections in water and they often look better rotated 180 deg vertical. http://www.carregwenimages.com/secti...30_224549.html

    Well as I'm a kind person I won't be billing you for it. What's the idea?

    Forgiveness is easier to get than permission!
