Wow, Ourania! I love this for so many reasons!
First, you have captured the elusive energy of youth! Of the six feet in this foto, 5 are entirely off the ground!
Next, there is the fine juxtaposition of the weathered, rustic wall and the shiny new car!
I like the choice of monochrome, as it adds a sense of "this is any place, this is every place" to the image!
Finally, you have handled the backlighting on the boys very, very well!

These boys are literally flying. Maybe the one to the left still keeps his toes to the ground but he hasn't lost anything of his speed and energy. Innocent kids are really some kind of saints and the very good light seems to have provided them with tiny halos. It's a snap-shot from an unremarkable place but it conveys such a strong childish joy that it touches my heart.
Thanks for sharing.

une très belle photo N&B, la scène de dos est superbe avec un bon éclairage sur les enfants.
macjake (45540) 2013-10-23 12:14
you only needed 1 more foot to be off the ground to have them ALL off the ground :)
I like to see the wrecked wall on the right, and all the rustic type of scenes.
for sure a scene that we can all relate to on some level.

That s the kind of capture I love, people and if possible in movement like these running children with feet at the air
Very well done and taken at the right moment, like the B/W color
Great shoot, congrats

Hi Ourania ,
The joy of youth. Well captured these three boys running towards the car. The B&W format has been an excellent choice for this composition as it gives so much atmosphere to the picture. Great contrast between the old wall with the plaster falling off and the smooth shiny car with crystal clear windows with reflections. A very professional job.

This is a lovely monochromatic picture the presence of which in your gallery strikes immediately as you seem to be fond of vivid colors in most of the views you have presented so far.
Your point of view is great and not so usual. There's delightful depth and clarity, very interesting and absolutely pleasing action image. Well done.

I like your nostalgic scene about the simple things during the childhood time. Well taken, good choice with the black and white.
Have a nice day.

this snapshot has so much charm and unique,but quite hard to explain with words mood.But it attracts immediately our attention and makes we become engrossed in meditation for a while.Dynamic,but having also something soothing in itself.Just love these different,quite contradictory feelings.
And in the end-the way you composed and timed the scene(really hats off!)as well as your perfect monochrome treatment,which helps you to enhance this special,unique feelings even stronger.
Truly delightful capture!
Wish You a nice day

An image full of life and beautifully captured at just the right moment. Excellent choice of black and white to concentrate the attention on the action. The image is well lit and has an excellent range of tonal values.
jhm (127843) 2013-10-24 3:44
A black and white picture, maybe can you place the colour version in workshop picture, than can everyone make are own choice.
Three boys in full spurt, on this moment all three feet's of the ground.
Sharpness and clarity make these picture attractive.
Very well done, TFS.
Have a nice day,

Young kids always in a rush, Ourania, like they have no patience... like something always around the corner...
Fine taken while tyhey were running, good clear picture. Two of them actally caught "standing" in the air.
Sergiom (45214) 2013-10-24 5:47
J'aime beaucoup cette composition pleine d'action comme peut l'être la journée de trois jeunes de cet age, insouciants et aventureux. Le mouvement est parfaitement saisi et le noir et blanc est judicieux.
pajaran (41565) 2013-10-24 10:36
Lep trenutak ...
Dobar trenutak snimka i kontrast, lepo pokazana deca koja trce.
Dobar rad, moje cestitke na ulovljenom trenutku.
Deca su nasa buducnost.
Prijatno vece i sve najbolje.
Beautiful moment ...
A good time recording and contrast nicely shown children who they run.
Good work, my congratulations for the captured moment.
Children are our future.
Good evening and all the best.

Hi dear Ourania,
a vey charming and captivating picture this one is.. like a lot the motion in it, the conversion to black and white style is perfect!
thanks for sharing..
Noel_Byrne (13182) 2013-10-25 7:47
a beautiful black and white capture and one which really captures a fine sense of childhood innocence and fun. Bonus points that you managed to capture such a candid scene when all three of three of tyre kids are in mid air too. Thanks as always for sharing

Ciao Ourania, delizioso bianco e nero, gran tempismo nel riprendere i tre bimbi sospesi per aria nella loro corsa, ottima gestione di una luce non facile, brava, ciao Silvio
mcmtanyel (5121) 2013-10-26 10:32
I like the use of B&W in this image. You have positioned the children very well in the frame, the viewer can see their destination. I also like the fact that you caught two of them off the ground.
fabbs99 (10992) 2013-10-26 12:20
Who says a black and white photograph cannot give you joy.This one gives you and gives you in full measure.Another fine composition and glimpse of daily life.I love the simplicity of your composition.Excellent composition, good presentation too. Very well done, TFS.

sei riuscita a cogliere con grande bravura e tempismo un bel momento di vita vissuta, quelle foto che tu sai bene mi piacciono davvero tanto.
Il risultato e molto piacevole ed interessante, una foto molto dinamica!!!
Un caro saluto
delpeoples (48564) 2013-10-29 4:39
Ciao cara Ourania
Normally I prefer photos of children to be in colour but here the B&W works so well, freezing this delicious moment in time forever and accentuating the shadows thrown by these little boys at play. The fast shutter speed has frozen them in flight beautifully, leaving a lovely record that makes us all hark back to the carefree days of our childhood.
mjw364 (6136) 2013-10-29 12:10
Great shot, all three feet off ground! Great tonal range - reminds me of some kind of news reportage shot. Must have had quick reflexes to catch this one.
adores (30773) 2013-11-01 16:47
You captured them really in the air! A good shot, with perfect sense of movement! I like the composition and the b&w!
