Award Shortlist   


By alinpetrus  
I make this image starting from the shyness idea in direct relationships between children, boys and girls. I noticed that as long children's are only playing together everything is ok. But, when they start to like the other one, they are embarrassed by questions from adults and they are very shy ... May I also bring something I remember from my childhoodSmile

[English]-The vey best of luck, Alin! I look forward to seing your next uploads here, some of them being already pre-viewed on places where I had to quit my photographic activity, and I do believe that most of your portfolio has got a huge potential to either get awarded here or simply enough motivation to trigger the imagination and also to become a sensitive stimuly for the hearts that want to open in order to receive your artistic message.

Take care! Wink

[Romanian]-Mult Noroc, Alin! Astept cu nerabdare si alte imagini pe care le-am vizionat in alta parte (unde nu mai particip de multa vreme), si cred ca multe dintre acestea au un potential artistic foarte mare, nu doar de afi premiate aici, ci pur si simplu de a stimula imaginatia si de a sensibiliza acolo unde "inima se vrea deschisa".

Mult succes!


P.S. ti-am adresat personal varianta in romaneste, dar in acelasi timp am considerat frumos sa intelaga toata lumea de aici despre ce vorbim, noi romanii (care au inceput sa apara aici cu lucrari excelente).
