My Cousin Zack fishing off the dock at Saylorville Lake. No Animals (amphibious and likewise) were injured in the making. :) apperently the fish didnt like my cousin's half eaten Rice Krispie Treat. not to mention that it might be hard for the little bullheads to swallow an almost whole bar.

Later Comments: i realize that the photo doesnt do justice to the title of the challenge. It was a lucky shot while out with the family. the background clarity helped define the forground therefore i thought it worthy of the challenge based on its description. regardless, thank you all for the comments. His parents love this photo and are still tryin to give me money for the prints i gave them. :) with people were after my other photos with their enthusiasm.

This is a really nice shot with a fun creative angle. Unfortunate it had to be used for this particular challenge because it dosen't fit well. Would have done in aweomse in lots of other challenges.

GREAT SHOT! Not much bokeh, I would have rated this a 9+ in another category.

Great POV! ... the background helps to tell the story, but it just doesn't scream "bokeh" to me. I think this is a great photo though - balancced color and great crop at the bottom - I think i can even see the sky in his eyes. 7 as bokeh ... 9 as "Good Times".

cool shot - but bokeh?
06/22/2006 06:01:32 PM
This didn't meet the challeng in any way, but a damn fun picture nonetheless :)
06/22/2006 05:10:26 PM
cool, I like the boats in the BG - creates a setting.

I already voted, now back for comments. I gave you a 9 on this shot. Lovely colors, crisp detail, interesting and adorable subject and pleasing bokeh.

Funny, entertaining, nice coloured water - same as the eyes, pleasant skin tones. I like it overall. The bokeh is a bit on the limited side though. 8.

Meets challenge very well: "... take a photograph whose subject is enhanced by the bokeh of the background." Nice!

This is darling, but I think it looks better with the boats cropped out.

06/21/2006 01:03:29 AM
The "Bokeh", isn't very strong at all...
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Neat pic, but out of focus area does not really enhance the subject - I'd like to be fishing.
