I am so happy this shot broke the sixes. For the record, it is not a homeless person under the blanket. It is my two year old son. The fog effect is actually smoke from the campfire that is a very safe distance away.

The only adjustments made to this shot were curves and a tighter crop.

Thanks for the comments.

This is one of my personal favorite past times. The beauty of the trees, rocks, and light rays shining on this child captures a simple pleasure and moment in time. This is a winning photograph. 10

you see, this picture is way more about the woods than about a pleasure of sleeping there. you have to learn how to arrange accents.

Love the streams of light. Not sure what/who is under those blankets, it might be better if they were not under the blankets so we could see how they are enjoying the day.
