Well done Emanuela. The shot of the stadium or playround would have been interesting. It's certainly got some nice shapes. But the inclusion of the boy and the ball makes for a really wonderful storytelling shot.
C'e bella!

Hi Emanuela!
Great hi-key shot.

Wow - a great image. The shadow of the airbourne ball is fantastic! Fascinating curves and contrasts all creating a frame for your subject. Great work.

Brava, Emanuela!
Che bella foto, molto interessante.
Non so perchè ma mi piace molto.
P.s. La fotografia è ricevere sensazioni, ogni volta nuove e per ognuno diverse (non ricordo di chi è).

Magnifico! Bona sera, Emanuela. Tutto è tanto bello nella fotografia...che non so che scrivere... perfetto, forse?

in un immaggine di HCBresson c'era un uomo che saltava sopra una pozzanghra sulla quale si rifletteva la sua figura.
Quell'ombra del pallone si riflette sulla superficie chiara costituendo un punto di attenzione come il pallone stesso al centro del fotogramma.
Le linee circolari in chiaroscuro costruiscono una profondità di campo, geometria portante della scena.
Il bambino nel suo inseguire il pallone rafforza l'immagine dando tridimensionalità all'intera figura.
Se è un CARPE DIEM ....beh... allora complimenti ...

This is absolutely stunning, Emanuela. This picture is perfect and it goes directly to my favourites. Great composition with the boy and the ball in the air with the shadows of both. Wonderful!

Great photo, Emanuela! The composition with the hemicycles and the staircase in right corner superior is already a succcès. The child and his balon in full movement add to the perfection. Splendid camaieu. The result makes a photo out of time. Congratulations! Annie

(sorry, out of points)

Hi Emanuela,
I really appreciate this image..!
Above all the composition is sooo well done, everything is in the right proportions in the right places!
Wonderful lines, superb post processing!
Congrats & greetings,
Pablo -

Nice tension in this image, Emanuela! There is a sense of something happening. The harsh light is quite effective, and your PP work very nice. Well done!

Hi Emanuela,
Simply beautiful. I love the overexposure of the ground, making the boy standing out so well. Nice patterns in the background too.
Well done,

Such a good crop to bring out the circles and position the stairs in top right corner. I also like the ending of white circles matching with white inner frame. Excellent shot. Bravo and respect!

great shot emanuela, i like it

Perfect timing with the ball in the air. Great composition and very cute subject.

Hello Emanuela.
I love the graphism in this work. The child adds something "more" and nice timing for the ball.
I love the light,the contrast and your choice of saturation.

Almost surrealistic...



What a beauty of a composition...and what a beauty of the note.
Bravo Emanuela!

Great photo and great note. I like it


Very inteligent choise it was the geometry made out of circular open lines in order to give more attention to the child. Light is so strong that it seems that the time is been stoped for a while!
Well done!

Very nice composition. I like how the amphitheatre curvatures provide a sort of barrier for the little boy. And the seemingly levetating ball that he apparently hit crossinig that barrier. Brilliant!
