    Willie or Jiro is fine by me.

    Intensity.

    It was field day yesterday at my kids school. As usual, I brought along my Nikon D70 fitted with my 18-70mm lens (so I won't change lenses every time) hoping to get some interesting shots of kids at play. Here's one that I got. Thank you very much for viewing.

    Just add 'MacKenzie'

    Re: Intensity.

    That's excellent, Willie. An excellent job on the conversion ot B & W. It's the fact that you shot it at 'child-height' and not 'adult-height' that makes it so strong. And having done so, having the adults in the background just adds to the strength. And you set yourself up at a beautiful angle in relation to the kids on the rope.

    Just such a well put-together image. One for the rest of us to study and learn from.

    Really smart kids, Jiro. They are obviously trying to pull you away from the 'dark side'

    Good shot, with good expressions. Do you have a Canon 5D Mk2 now?

    Hi Willie,

    I agree, a great shot, expanding a little on what Donald said; I think having the white (field) line go into the corner, plus being dead level with the rope (so it is horizontal), makes this work so well, but of course, that expression is wonderful too and really makes it fly.

    I have learnt from analysing and writing this, so thanks.

    Great stuff,

    Yes. And the two distinct angled lines of people running back from the boy at the front give it great depth. While the building at the rear stops it it neatly. Nice.

    Thank you very much for the warm comments, Donald. I also learned a lot both from taking the time to analyze how I would frame the shots prior to pressing the shutter button and also during the post-processing. I'm very glad this passed your approval. Cheers.

    Thanks a lot, Rob. I still have my "lowly" Nikon D70 for now, unless someone is willing to donate a 5D MkII to me.

    Amazing shot Willie! I've learned a thing or two in this photo of yours especially the timing that you patiently waited to capture this moment
