Well, compliments are in order. That is definitely a good tear. At first I thought it might be a "hot pepper" or another type of fabricated tear. But it really tiz the "emotional" tear.

Yeppers !! That is exactly a drop !! Very accurate. I am impressed !! Historically, teardrops are usually much bigger then the standard drop. But this one is spot on !!

The greyscale is still visible on 2 of the tomatoes. (on the edges) Also red splotch to the top right of the main tomato needs removed. That being said, it is an interesting take on the theme. IMHO, the other three tomatoes should be red also.

On my computer, after I edit the photo, the EXIF data is edited too. Unless I keep a copy of the original, a lot of the data about the image is lost. (camera, ISO, exposure, etc.)

Will someone please explain to me how the admin. knows the EXIF data of an entry, if it is not submitted by the author. Is it encrypted in the entry somehow ? And for entries that are post processed, the EXIF data is lost, is it not ?

How do they know the data? Especially if the original has been edited?

Is this "auto add feature" referring to the camera data below entry ?? (iso, exposure, etc.) Never heard of that term before.

The contest moderator changed the parameters of the theme. Originally it was just one child. Then it was later changed to children. So everything is cool.

That is indeed one stunning piece of instrumentation there. Wouldn't it be cool if a heavy metal band rolled one of these monsters out on stage and started whaling away on it ?? Good pic, author.

There is just something about a sax player in a rock band. They are always so spot on when they do their solos. Author, are you familiar with the sax player in the band Supertramp ? (especially the song called The Logical Song)

Now, in my humble opinion, this is one HECKAVA capture here. I absolutely love the blue colors, the baggy jeans on the boy, his shoes askew like kids are prone to do, the girl trying to get the model thing going, the peeling paint on wall, etc. High score from me and good luck, author.
