    We went to Lake Tahoe last week. I had my wife take this shot of my son and I. It was about 15 min before sunset. C&C welcome! Thanks for looking!:D

    its a beautiful shot, but it could be improved by a crop to get you out of 'the bullseye' and get rid of the empty space.

    Thats exactly what I thought. It's a beautiful picture but the reflection os the sun on the water is way distraction...or more so it's location.

    Like this? I got rid of the bicycle tracks too. Don't know if I can do much about the "glowing crotch"...

    Actually, i do like that better, but you are still in the bulleye position, crop off more of the right side and top....it will just pull the balance to the side a bit. the shining crotch doesnt bother me....but if it irks you, you can just clone it out..

    Crop off more. Crop out the boat on the left and the trees on the right, add maybe a little more contrast, and your shot goes from 'good' to 'great'.

    Actually that is "silhouette" to be precise.

    The OP WONDERED about the spelling, so why not allow someone to tell him what the correct spelling is? If Skieur had not said so, I would have.

    And yes, also I feel it would ask for some further cropping, though I would not crop in from the right, I like how the long shadows start to come out of the bottom right corner. But there sure is too much on the left and also too much sky ... I hope you don't mind I am showing you what I mean:

    Both pics (your first shown here and my version that should indicate where I find the cropping might best be) have already been deleted from my computer.

    I think the "glowing crotch" is quite funny :D.

    Very nice! I liked the original but the newest cropped version is really nice, the shadows pull the subject right to you.. :)
