Coley: That's awesome! I'm hoping one day I can show this shot to Zach (toss-ee in the picture) and bring back memories.

Thank you for the sharing!!

I would have liked a tighter crop on this one

I find it too static.
Maybe it could be improved decentering the subject and trying to freeze an instant with more distance between the men hands and the kids.

Sweet subject... The only distracting thing for me is that the grass hides the mans feet... other from that I like this picture a lot (could make the blue more outstanding IMHO) but... good luck :o)

Good composition to capture the light and a playful moment. A crop on left and right may make it more intimate. 7

I think it was a gallent effort! Now, if the sun was behind the son, it might eccentuate the subject better. And maybe if the child was a tiny baby...
