*Hello from Sid and the Critique Club*

A great shot for the family album.

A moment stopping action shot which together with your title suggests the brief calm before the subsequent splash and possible tears. I like that it is a candid moment where your son is completely oblivious to the camera.

I like the composition with your son positioned on the front third with plenty of background water and trees to convey where he is. I have to agree with posthumous I would definitely get rid of the frame edges, for me, its ruining the end result. The other big problem is the blown highlight on his arm it definitely needs pegging back some.

All in all a very pleasing shot that with the suggested alterations would be even stronger, thanks, Sid

great capture, but the vignette and coloring create a kind of sickly pall
