Fascinating photo, Chiu. The kids seem so little for exams though! I remember exam time far too clearly. I really, really hated it. I feel their tension! Great composition here with the rows of children and the strong colours. Nicely done!

Hi Chiu! This photo really popped out at me from the gallery. Really wonderful bright whites to make the kids in blue shirts pop out. I love the POV coupled with the vertical cropping to bring focus to the depth of field and perspective made with the "line" of children sitting at tables. This also emphasizes the tension and suspense of taking the exam for these kids. Great with the boy in the foreground in the lower half. I think the photo could have been less blurred on his face, but great shot and concept anyway. TFS!

hi chiu!
great compo, nice shot.
good focus point.



Very interesting and good photo.
POV and DOV are fantastic for me,
nice colors and good presentation too.
very well done.


I like the way you composed this shot, the pattern came out nicely. The camera may have been on auto-focus and locked on the arms of your subject, rather than the face. But it still came out nicely.

Thanks for sharing this one.
