My son, happy as always! He was swimming in an empty *clean* trashcan on the porch. Since he was in the shade, I exposed for him, and it caused the background to be overexposed. This is my favorite all-time shot of him and one of my favorite 5 I have ever done.

Sad to see that this didn't score much higher. Great real photography - a lovely capture of a moment of life's pleasure. Adding to favorites. Very well done (and it wouldn't be the same without the blown back IMO).

Good capture. Wish I could see the water splashing of his face. Good Luck. 6.

I don't know why people hate blown highlights so much. I think they really make this shot. Great job.
