wow that is a great shot!!! hah good!
LOL excellent! :smileys:
I love irony. Good shot.
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.
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.
Looks to me like it's been p/shopped. Either that or the kid has very light skin If it hasn't been p/shopped, then, nice shot 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.
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!
great subject and great composition! Definately made me laugh out loud! thanks for sharing!
Sorry to question it mate, just looked too good to be true I suppose
