My four year old son doing what four year old boys do best...

I'm upset because the sand is nice and sharp in the original, but saving for web killed it. Oh well.

would love more of his shadow coming towards the viewer (would have needed to move him towards the water..probably would've lost the moment then) but this is really nicely done and handled that tough setting sun very well IMO

very touching and a great catch with that seagull there too. Highlights are blown out but I really don't mind it too much here

Great warm tones here. Effective use of backlighting. Seems to lean slightly to the right.

He'd trained for this moment from the time he could begin to talk. A few short and measly years, but all his time and energy had gone to preparing for and learning about this one moment.

He stood there, the hope of a nation, the pride of the world. He stood there, the tiny prodigy, a young sorcerer, ready to cast his magic and heal the world.

He stood there, and tossed his reagents into the air and uttered his words of power, and light flared upon the waters, and the wind howled in the sky, and the people gasped and cheered and the dying sun flared to life once more.

With a sigh, his little body collapsed into the sand, exhausted, and he was carried off a hero.

the silhouetted figure, the presence of the gull, the bold light behind - very good elements

Almost looks as if he released the bird as well. Beautiful silhoutte. Fun emotion.

That airborne sand is killer - makes the shot.

Sweet! Not only did you catch the sand in the air, but also a bird! Love the light and the tones.
