love the selective coloring. altho the bright blue makes you really focus on the building and the lil girl is very much overlooked

I like the blue and white shed and the selective colouring certainly draws attention to the building. Nice bold colour and composition-wise it is nicely on the thirds.

There is not much tonal variation in the black and white part of the photo, so once you have looked at the shed there is not much to pull you further into the pic. The girl looks very small in comparison to the shed and makes the shot possibly slightly unbalanced in my opinion.

But a nice seaside scene.

Cover the little girl up and its a nothing shot. Her figure is as important to the composition as the hut. She stops the eye exiting the scene. An uncomplicated shot and I like it very much.

Very simple image, but extremely effective. The girl does add something to the photo, really like the effect on the colours too.

Cool shot - simple yet effective.
I agree with the things mentioned so far - the girl is important and maybe colouring her would add something to the picture, would be interesting to try, I think.
Plus the B&W area is pretty grey. Maybe playing a little with the light and shadow options of the editing program will help it look more complex.

Nonetheless, Love this Smile
