Very, very beautiful picture. The father looks like king Neptune, says Melissa, my 6 year old sweetheart.
Love it!

Nice shot. Cool hair and beard.

A compelling visual with super silhouttes to play against the fiery background and sun disk. Congratulations on your top ten finish.

Great job! I loved the colors and silhoutte in this shot, and the overall feel of father/son relationships that you tried to create in this shot. That type of shot has a very traditional and conservative feel to them. So with that being said, I have to say that the man's HAIR (and beard) in this shot just feels WAAAAYYYY out of place in regard to traditional and conservative. It would have worked better in a skateboarding or surfing pic. Good job in meeting the challenge 100% though, leaving no room to have to figure it out.

could be very sweet. wish the child's head profile were more obvious
07/25/2006 05:16:27 AM
Nice haircuts : )

When looking at these photos as a collective, no other stood out as much as this photograph. It's a simple and honest shot which addresses the challenge title well. However I would have prefered a more centered composition but this end product does feel more candid.

Thats a really cool picture! Great job 10!!
07/23/2006 10:27:27 PM
A very powerful shot, and what a great mood that is et by this shot. The colors are amazing!9
07/23/2006 08:22:23 AM
very well done - back to bump to 9

Great sillouhette. Enormous sun is a little distracting (but just a little).
07/22/2006 08:03:48 PM
nice job!
07/22/2006 04:23:52 PM
If only the sun could be softened a tad ... otherwise a very nice shot that can be treasured by the family. Quite beautiful really and endearing.
07/22/2006 02:24:28 PM
Cropping just above the father's back works well too, focusing on the people - either way, it's a great shot. 8

Awesome. Love the hair.
07/22/2006 06:12:32 AM
This is great. I love when 'punk rock' looking guys are soft and mushy inside with their kids.
07/21/2006 05:20:42 PM
great silhouette and moment captured....he's got some sweet hair too.
07/21/2006 12:33:04 PM
One of my four top picks int his challenge> Great silhouette and very nice colors. I hope this does well for you and I will most likely be back top bump it up later on this weekend.
07/20/2006 11:48:13 PM
That is awesome. I love this shot. Not only are the colors warm and the typical photo loving, but the theme is perfect with the silloettes. (SP!) Marked as favorite.
07/20/2006 10:05:24 PM
Great hair day!
07/20/2006 09:37:52 PM
oh, my God, this is the most precious thing i've seen in a long time. i'm actually choked up. i hope this gets the blue. it's just so beautiful.

I love this shot
07/20/2006 02:46:39 PM
Fantastic... a magical moment captured. Perfect use of silohuettes.
07/20/2006 11:10:12 AM
Very nice shot. Flare is well controled, and although present, it is not overly distracting.
07/20/2006 08:30:42 AM
This is sweet. This is nicely done!
07/20/2006 01:57:56 AM
Great shot. Compositionally perfect and great point of interest. The color is awesome. Good job.

07/19/2006 10:54:30 PM
Some images are all about the hair ... this is one ... super rocking color, captured moment and sharky fly hair-styles.
07/19/2006 10:33:29 PM
Very nice. Love the man's hair!
07/19/2006 05:47:41 PM
