    I posted this pic in the snapshots forum because I forgot about the general gallery. = ) My son and I were playing with our toys in the backyard when I took this shot. I think it's a funny picture because of the truck "looking" at my bike. I also can see it as something of a self portrait with the toy being the focus in the foreground and my bike off in the distance. Sort of how my life has been the past couple of years.

    Interesting photograph with good composition. I might not have noticed the eyes if you hadn't mentioned it. I wonder if you could have gotten a bit closer to the tractor without ruining the composition.

    I was actually trying to do that but it just wasn't working. I was using my 60mm Micro lens so maybe something a bit more wide angle could make it work. But then I think it would not look the same in wide angle. I may try to do some work on the truck to tone down the hot spots, then maybe the eyes would stand out a bit more.

    Thanks for the comment! I really like the composition of this shot, too.
