This is a candid photo I took of my dad and my son during a night of fishing. I love it and have a canvas 24x16 printed to give my dad for Father's day. I almost didn't submit it because of the personal feelings I have for it, and know how anal the voters are and can be. I don't care what it scores and yes I probably should remove the stray stick by my dad's leg. But I actually like it.

Nice capture of a moment between generations. There's something to be said about B&W; nice choice. Only distraction is the grass in front of the grandfather's legs... Nice shot none the less.
