Ah - I liked this. I gave this a 6 during voting. Nice capture and nice light.
Photograph Information, Technicals & Composition Review
I think all your technicals work well with this image and are all quite sound. What this image would benefit from, in my opinion, is a much more refined crop and composition. Of course, this image would probably lend itself well to a b&w or toning conversion too - but 'another image'.
Composition suggestions would be: losing the car at the top of the image. Depending on what you had to work with and the quality, perhaps even a bold crop out of the 'bodies' - but not sure, might change the image too much and remove needed context. My favorite part is the water, light and of course the 'touching'. The backlighting really works well and contributes to the overall warm feel.
The OOF (out of focus) foreground on the right perhaps cropped a little more, but it does provide good 'lead' into the main subject. Perhaps the main subject (the touch/water) being placed on the 'thirds' more would enhance the image, but in this case, I don't think it matters that much.
Comments, Score & Placement Review
222/418, is fairly average placing and a score of 5.63 is quite good for a Free Study.
Ah - just looked at your profile and see this is your first entry. Congratulations on your first submission and welcome to DPC. I think this is a good image to kick it off with.
Your one comment received during the Challenge is very helpful.
Very nice moment captured and well seen. You did well to get the right parts in focus and work fast enough to capture all this.
