    BTW, he's all set... he's got shoes on.

    Thanx, I needed a good laugh.


    Edit: oops, critique gallery. The good laugh is from the subject. Laughing with you, not at you. :)
    BTW, great shot.

    First reaction: Brilliant; very, very funny.

    Second reaction: Where's the water? I tried looking for it... is it the blue slice at the top of the frame? I doubt it, it looks like sky, in which case it's distracting. It also shows a green tint, which looks unnatural. I don't think you would lose anything by trimming the very top of the frame.

    Third reaction: Brilliant; very, very funny.

    Matthew,
    I agree with you on both counts. It could stand to be cropped at the top. And it has a bit of a green cast. It seems to be more exaggerated in the scan than in the original image.

    It was definitely a "grab shot" with not much in the way of pre-arrangement.

    Thanks for your comments.

    Also, thanks to all who commented. It's much appreciated.

    James

    Looks to me like it's been p/shopped. Either that or the kid has very light skin :p If it hasn't been p/shopped, then, nice shot :D Very funny, that could be an internet classic :)

    Edit: Also the shadow of the kid looks drawn in. And he/she looks way too small. I think I might be over analysing it now.

    Trig,
    Thanks for the feedback.

    This shot wasn't ps'd in terms of it's composition. The boy and the sign really were there when I took the shot.

    But this is a slide scan and I did try to adjust the levels and curves a little in ps. Looks like I could still use some work in that area because the colors are still a little off. And yes, I agree the skin tone is not quite right.

    Thanks again for your comments!
