Looks like this navel burped fire. The sunset placement is just too weird.

Good family picture and I love the expression on the child's face. I would have probably shot from a slightly different angle - the cloud looks like it's coming from the adult's head, although it does fit in perfectly with the bending of his body.

cool clouds above his head
the sun is almost in place for "great balls of fire" (//www.dpchallenge.com/image.php?IMAGE_ID=177358)

nice idea, but the position of the sun really takes away from the image. some images, like a nice landscape or sunset, do not always need a strong subject. however, most images DO need a strong subject, where the essence of the image is conveyed instantly. here, your subject is competing with it's background. it's a nice idea, just poorly executed. i imagine this would make a fantastic photo, if you had been between the man and the sun, with the man's back to you. then, without using the flash, you would have had the sunlight in the boy's joyous face--and that would have been good for at least another point or two...

Pretty backdrop and nice framing. However, the harsh flash detracts from this shot and the sun call attention to the guy's waist and boxers/lanyard and distract from what you want the viewer to focus on. I think the was a great idea and has very good potential. I feel like it could have been a little better executed, though.

Placement of the sun with respect to the belly is a bit unfortunate. Like the shot, though!

I'm afraid the location of the sun draws attention to the wrong part of this image. A very tight crop might correct this. Great shot though.

The sun draws attention to the belly. Different camera positioning would have made a big difference to this pleasant father-son (I'd guess) shot.

I'll bet you're getting some comments on this one! ;^) Your belly is on fire. Your head is smoking. ;^) The little soccer player looks happy enough.
