[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Not one of my cheery images, but as they say every picture tells a story.
Children and the Internet.
Could be the daily routine of almost any child in the world. One of my daughter's favourite's, surfing the net. I must add she is very mature and sensible when using the internet, but she sometimes, becomes so engrossed that she gets lost inside, oblivious to her parents and her daily chores.
This image took quite some manipulation and after many attempts in Photoshop this is one of the results, produced in B/W to show the sometimes darker side of the internet.

Camera hand held Pentax Optio 750z. I should have used a tripod but it was a candid capture.

Very nice concept Amanda and you carried it out very good..Well done !!

Over the last decade computers have had a great impact upon our (and our children's) daily life. For parents there's no reference to similar experiences in their upbringing, so they are left a bit in the dark. I see it mainly as a task for educators and schools to learn kids about the huge possibilities of "the world at hand" and the use of it in a sensible way.
The effect shown in your picture was very popular in the sixties' videoclips :-) and can now easily be achieved by using a webcam. The disadvantage IMO is that by using this effect the eye is drawn to the "point of disappearance" and is not given a chance to wander around in the picture itself. But at least you tried and put some considerable effort in it, so TFS

Very nice depth of perception. Good post processing skills. Well done.

Hi Amanda, yes I agree with you, Internet is just like the world around us. We don't want to go everywhere we can and we don't want to see all there is. Keep a good eye and give some explenation why some areas are dark corners, that's one of the things I do for work with "grown-up" adult users. I like your PP, I can't see the altering and all the BW variations are very nice to see. Sharp, nice angle and a nice presentation. Good work, Richard

Very good composition Amanda. Great idea. Well done!

Did it occur to you that there is bit of Alice in Wonderland in this, with the computer being the mirror and Alice wondering about the other side? Careful she doesn't disappear into that infinite space you created. A creative idea well carried out.

Today I looked and gave a lot of points on your images. I think they are worthy of more praise. From humerous to sensitive issues I like all of your images. I hope you dont mind I have added you to my faves.

Nice self portrait, but presented it on a notebook screen, interesting composition.
