Very nice low key photo; this certainly has a story to tell with that background. Is the child moving away from something or towards the distance? What is the relationship between the two? This asks many questions and makes me want to learn more about the subjects, and to me this is what works.

Great image - love the color. Wish I had scenery like this for me and my boy to walk around and view.

Too underexposed.

Nice contrast. The lighting is also nice, creates a good tone.

Casaul moment.

Those clouds make it look like a volcano erupting. Nice sepia.

I really like this shot and love how you've processed it.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/16/2009 01:22:26 PM
Good shot. A little foggy or dark though.

A very effective image, looks good in sepia

Nice shot, good title.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

This is excellent. My first reaction (as I seeded this into my "bump" group on first pass) was that it was close, but that the murky processing had failed the image. I don't think that any longer. I think if you processed it conventionally the parallax would dissipate. It's a powerful, and timeless, shot. Well done and bumping. 9.

I really like this. The sepia tones add a lot. The subject matter is very pleasing.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Nice mood evoking image. Nice execution. 7
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/15/2009 01:27:48 PM
Whole image is really quite dark and I don't feel like it helps the image.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/15/2009 12:27:51 PM
toning really sets the mood
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/15/2009 12:00:30 PM
A bit dark for my tastes, but an interesting scene.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/15/2009 12:00:17 PM
Good dramatic feel
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/15/2009 10:21:18 AM
Very nice image. It's good to see a few "great" images. This is a perfect reflection of your abilities as a photographer.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/15/2009 01:42:25 AM
hmm... I like this. There is something going on here, a moment well captured. I'm not crazy about the processing though.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/15/2009 01:07:55 AM
Very nice feel to this. Creates a wonderful mood with two generation moving in a carefree way -still silently connected to each other!

nice father son shot
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/14/2009 09:22:59 PM
Love the composition. Just wish it wasn't as dark...
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Coming back to comment...

Sweet image! Love the toning!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/14/2009 12:39:40 PM
This is slightly too dark for me to enjoy properly, but I can see that the composition and subject matter are great, a poignant image :)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/14/2009 11:03:22 AM
Low key sepia. Great idea! Love the low angle.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/14/2009 09:41:46 AM
I remember seeing this somewhere before... only I can't remember where. This is superb. The composition is great, the sepia tones perfect, and that lighting gives the whole image a very powerful feel. Plus, the story it tells, between the man and the child, is fascinating.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/14/2009 09:21:37 AM
Great shot! Perhaps the white clouds could do with a tad more contrast to really boost this, but still a super shot. 8

03/14/2009 12:23:27 AM
nice storytelling.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/13/2009 06:36:17 PM
Very moody! Well done :)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/13/2009 03:09:57 PM
Great title. :)

This picture has a little bit of an apocalyptic tone to it that I like. Then again, maybe I've been playing too much Fallout 3 lately and am just impressing that on it... Regardless, I like it. :)

Very evocative image, nice choice for the sepia coloring.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/13/2009 02:03:43 PM
Aptly titled. Interesting sense of scale. Interesting POV.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/13/2009 10:29:20 AM
I like the processing. It reminds me of an apocalyptic movie.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/13/2009 09:20:27 AM
The first thing I notice about this pic is how dark it is. But after taking a moment to let the rest come out, I really like this. Especially the two small silhouettes near the shoulder of the kid.

Nice mood with the man and the boy. I like the tone and the darkness.

like the tones much nicer than a B&W
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/12/2009 09:27:31 PM
too dark
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/12/2009 11:00:29 AM
Like the ideas you've captured, but not sure the narrow contrast scale works for me.

Delighted to see this entered here. I've quite often thought of this image when editing some of my own beach/seascapes. I hope it does well for you :)

i like this picture, but if there was more sky then i think that it would be much better
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/11/2009 05:32:35 PM
Although rather dark and murky, there is something very nostalgic about this shot. It feels like the adult is in a contemplative, introspective mood and the child is carefree and unaware.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/11/2009 05:24:41 PM
Love the composition here, it is really calming.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/11/2009 05:05:44 PM
A little dark for me but nice story.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/11/2009 02:31:21 PM
This certainly has a timeless quality. I feel like I stepped into another era. I love the lack of true highlights. Great composition with the juxtaposed dad and son. the clouds and shadowy mountaintop make for a wonderful backdrop.

great shot cool light great composition

Beautiful ambiance here. I like the tones and the title actually made me look up what a parallax was.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

visually very appealing.

I really like the mood that this image suggests.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/11/2009 01:30:22 AM
really like the shot...but something about it makes it to dark...I know you were trying for a moody shot, but I think it is just a little over the edge, to bad cause it is an excellent shot
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/11/2009 12:09:05 AM
I love this shot Clarissa, I'm glad you finally got to enter this in a challenge, I hope other voters can see the beauty in it.
