This water fountain seemed to solicit different reactions. It seems indeed true that the younger you are, the more playful (and less careful) you are. Joie de vivre to the max.
Have a pleasant day,

Indeed two very different reactions to the water. I like the spouts of water from the fountain and the composition is well balanced with the positions of the adults and the child in the shot. Black and white was a nice choice for this subject too.

indeed two completely different reactions! you have captured it well and by now it should have more smileys!! The black and white works well here. the mood of the child is really nicely captured and those two couples add something more to this composition. nice work

A nice photo with life and movements. I like the B&W white treatment which allows to make well visible the water and the short time exposure which shows well the drope of water.
The framing is also very efficient with all elements well placed.
A good photo,

It is obvious from the photo that youngers are better to enjoy each moment in life. Taking cover under an umbrella in a such ejnoyable moment whereas that little boy enjoying the moment... I am jealous of him, I would like to get wet under that amazing water jet.
I like long exposure time for drops of water and B&W choice.

Very emotional photo.

this is really an interesting shot, well composed and framed. I find lovely the boy moving in the right, he seems dancing.
Thanks for sharing.

Only four pictures on your galery but all are interesting and i like this shot alot with the couple standing and the boy playing. Very original shot and choosing b&w format make it more poetic. tfs

Une photo très joliment conmposée, dynamique et pleine de vie. J'aime bien le choix du n&b, qui donne un beau contraste entre l'eau de la fontaine et le béton environnant, avec un milieu de tout cela un couple et un enfant dans leurs réactions différentes. Je la vois un peu comme une métaphore: plus on vieillit, plus on devient 'frileux'... ;-)

This is a very cute moment, Cristian.
There is something in the fountains that attracts kids so much...my daughter doesn't miss one no matter when or where we go! I say this looking at the happiness of the boy :)
Even only people with the umbrella would be enough to make this a lovely post, but I guess the child adds liveliness to the image.

Awesome pic Cristian! Its got that timeless feel of the old classic masters of photography! I hope you eventually mannaged to joined the boy in getting soaked! ;)

Beautifuly observed and executed Cristian - the moment is perfectly caught - there is such a humorous side to it whilst at the same time being a serious drawing with light - the image speaks for itself - one of my favourites this year and a delight to discover your gallery.
best wishes Kev

Superb shot with great timing. The POV is very well-chosen. The boy's and the couple's joy is enviable. Congrats.
PS. Have a look at my friend Rigoletto's shot of a similar scene.

An excellent B&W composition with drope of water and the lines. Very funny shot. Well done...

Hi Cristian, it's a pleasure for me to discover your gallery, full of gems, i'm sure i'll love it :)
Thanks to write words to me in french, i like the effort.
I like this one, this BW with not too much dark tones, more white and dark greys, compo is excellent with just as needed elements and subject.
Yes this is a good picture.
gbarto (1273) 2008-05-16 7:10
Ton image est superbement composée
J'aime bien le mouvement des jets d'eau et leur explosion sur le sol.
J'aime bien aussi l'attitude des difrférents personnages.
Belle photo, bravo

Nice graphic image, there is a certain jubilation that I like very much in this photo !
Well seen, compliments,
delnaja (2054) 2008-07-02 10:29
yes! the curve agai, and I must say curves, and the scene is excellent!
The movment of the child, the couple under the umbrella.
Matthew-Watt (6043) 2008-07-30 2:48
Wow, what a great moment! There is so much action to witness here, a workout for your camera but it has handled the conditions well. I like the animated stance of the kid and also the strange way the other people in the frame approach the fountain with the unhelpful umbrella. Creative work!

Hello Cristian, great moment captured! Dynamic with nice exposure, and good choice in monochrome.
Isabelle (9046) 2008-10-25 16:27
This one´s a delight, Cristian.
The composition is perfect and you were very lucky for having two different motives in the image. The overall feeling is very pleasing and joyful. Let´s get wet! :D
Into my fav too ;)
