    Taken on a rainy grey day at Loch Lomond in Scotland of a family looking out over the water in silence.

    70-200L @ f/4, bit of work in Lightoom (sepia filter), high pass filter applied in Photoshop as well as a touch of sharpening.

    Not sure which crop works better because they send different messages imo.

    Feedback more than welcome as always. :)

    Nice job on the pictures.

    The second crop is a bit eery. Reminds me of someone taking the kid and him looking back for help or something. Its a much more powerful image.

    The first one is a little less emotional but a great capture of a moment.

    Not sure which I like better, I'd vote for the 1st

    I prefer the 2nd shot as I think it's a simpler subject. I didn't get the creepy kidnapping vibe from it and don't see anything that would lead me to that conclusion. Nice shot though.
