I enjoy you careful use of selective focus.

Took me a few seconds to find the koalas, and the discovery was a revelation in how you chose focus past the foreground.

Bit of Australia in Bali huh?? Well I guess that's not all too uncommon. You've done it again with this looks like a studio shot did you ask them to pose?? Haha I doubt it. I love the DOF here and it leads really well to the little girl. Nice contrast of shadows. Lovely. I would love to see another photo with the guy in full colour and focus.

Lovely shot Stu, as JC said the suprise far right really elevates this to a belter of a photo.

Great. really nice shot. Like what you've done with the focus soft beginning on the guy pulling our eyes to the little girl. Nice job.

Firstly, the way you've set up the DOF is excellent; the way it's focussed on the young one looking on is great. Great use of black and white, excellent tone as always!
