Went out on the river for the day - it was VERY hot, with no breeze at all! Even getting in the water wasnt enough, so two of our girls were trying to stay cool. Brought the new camera, and was able to capture lots of memories. With enough practice, maybe I can earn a little money to pay for all this equipment one day!! If not, at least the grandparents have lots of pics on the wall!!!!!

Greetings from the Critique Club.

Hi Billy,

Congratulations on a lovely shot that will no doubt be a great memory for you (and the grandparents). There is a wonderful sense of motion here (stopped of course). I can almost feel the angst and glee of the kids - in that sense the shot is very effective at conveyign this emotion.

The kids expressions are what make this shot so you would have done well to push that. A closer crop, and maybe a bit of contrast and sharpness around the faces could have brought this out a bit more. I would suggest you crop the top, left and right to compose your subject in the top third of the image - centrally composed subjects such as this generally look a bit flat (although not always).

I think you have scored well here with what some might regard as a snap-shot - that is a testement to the character of the shot. Well done.

I hope my comments help and Good Luck in future Challenges!

nice idea, but a bit soft and loose. if you were in tight on their faces, you would have had a killer shot.

Love the hair! How many times have you heard that? It's the first thing I noticed when the image came up. Cute pic. Too bad you couldn't get a nice rooster tail behind the tube or something to add a little punch. May be a bit underexposed (seems like the whites could be brighter)? Good luck in the challenge.

Love the way the hair stands up in this shot. You should trade the bertha in on a Kite tube though. Lots of fun with insane air that will really make for some good action shots! Great capture!
