That's a bit melancholic, but sooo beautiful! I love the water drops on the back and the sad kid in the front, most of all I like the choice of b/w for this picture!

The use of light and shadow here is just stunning and very clever. The quotation gives a trong sens to the pic. I like both A LOT. Wonderful !!
5 Jul 2009 12:04pm
One moment indeed! Frozen in time...
Ever seen the movie Big Fish? Maybe you could break the water curtain apart with your hand as well. Beautiful!
(Oops, I think I just broke my own rule about not to praise a work... well, rules are mend to be broken, I guess? :-))

Exposing to the lights has been the best idea, the perfect decission to create this image so beautiful. The boy appears to be thinking, his thoughts sparkling like the water.

5 Jul 2009 4:43pm
great mood created here sharon. it's like a moment where a kid enjoys the fountain pouring down beside him and he just wants to go in and take the splash!
5 Jul 2009 4:48pm
Wonderful, poignant capture. Terrific quote and title; a major goal of mine is to live in the moment; one of the times that I do that is when I am shooting.
5 Jul 2009 5:01pm
So wonderful that words made me ... a masterpiece
5 Jul 2009 5:29pm
I feel a certain calm in this picture. But also neglect. Emotions collide!! Wonderful work.

This is a really nice way to give us a silhouette. Shooting behind the window or the sun is getting old. The fountain is a nice way to tweak the formula.
6 Jul 2009 5:31am
superbe ce contre jour !
6 Jul 2009 5:39am
Seems very moody, especially since it's a young person.

Aboslutely brilliant composition for this nice backlight. Nothing I can think of to improve this foto.

Un superbe contre jour! sous une pluie de lumière! Je suis très admirative de votre créativité!!
