Your photo shows that even a personal snapshot can be well composed and also intriguing to the viewers who do not know the persons. The shot has a nice diagonal angle and good depth. I like that you show movement and that the girls seem unaware of the camera

    Hi Cleo!
    Thanks so very much,my friend!
    ( They actually forgot about me for a moment and I'm glad they did 'cause they have a tendency to start 'hamming it up' for the camera and that usually makes for some silly and 'not worth posting' photographs! : D

    Take it as photographers luck. We all need luck to get good shots. Technique is not everything. :o)

Your focus, framing, and lighting are all very good. They look like they are enjoying the sun, which I have done the same many times. Thanks for sharing this with us and have a wonderful week. :)

Nice clear shot. Looks like a beautiful day at the river. I like the way the water looks in the sun. Nice job centering and cropping. Thanks for sharing!

Nice candid shot Sean and looks like even though your near,they seem to be ignoring you,my first though though is that washed out sky which I think done you no favours in this,other than that enjoyable to view,takes me back to younger days[but won,t go there]...brian

    All right-y then!
    I felt that coloring a natural 'hot' white summer sky a fake shade of bright blue would have done nothing but give the picture a truly Weird and totally Amateurish look.
    Sorry you didn't like it,Brian,but thanks for helping the picture reach 'All Time Best' status! : )

Lovely candid shot of your friend's daughter and her friend, looking at something that has caught their attention, Sean. I like the natural look of this. Very good lighting and focus. Great natural shot. Suzanne

Comment from Brendaartwork18


Off the cuff shot and no pouting lips make for me a better photograph. The girls seem in a very natural pose capture at diminishing angle. Focus and fore light is clear and crisp. Background not intrusive. Sky a little if no determined colour. Overall a nice family photo.

    Hi Brenda!
    Thanks so very much,my friend!
    ( I'm so glad that Elizabeth's mom caught their attention from off camera and they didn't get the chance to start 'hamming it up' by making silly 'duck faces' and blowing kisses while I snapped this picture! : ) )
Comment from orchidrn


A nice candid shot of these two young ladies, depicting today's youth. I like that they are not posing and seemingly caught off guard and au naturelle. Very nice

Comment from Envision


Very nice Sean! I like the candid capture and how nice the balance is with flattering light on the subjects. Their expressions are very interesting and makes me wonder what has their attention.
