Dear all, I'm currently deciding on photos to send in for the SYPA competition and I've decided firmly on five shots, but am still on the fence for the last one. I've narrowed it down to two, because both have their good points and bad points. I would like your opinion on the two photos below, both of which i have posted before. I have already posted one of them under critique corner but would like serious critique on the second one. If you like it, please tell me why you like it. If you hate it, please give similar reasons. Please do not write something like "cute shot", as it doesn't help me at all. What matters to me is which shot you think is more original, has a better feel and is technically stronger. Thank you for taking the time to help.
Some notes about my other selections. Which would fit better into an overall presentation?
Nature(landscape) - 1 (colour)
Portrait(studio) - 1 (colour)
People at work(street) - 1 (monochrome)
Abstract(studio) - 1 (monochrome)
Children at play(street) - 1 (colour)
