My favorite shot of the challenge - made even better when I noticed it was taken in Durban. I spent alot of time with my grandparents in Durban North so this really makes me think "Family".

Nice shot! I really like the participation of the son helping the father out. The lighting is very nice, and the use of color, or no-color, was well done. Congratulations.

i think the title ruins it a bit
some things u have to leave to the viewer especially when they are so obvious
just my opinion
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/13/2005 12:47:46 PM
conversion to B&W works well here. composition excellent. Tones well done. 9 - good luck in the challenge!

I love this shot, well done. Good exposure, and composition.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/12/2005 04:01:09 PM
I like the sharpness and claity of the shot ... in this case the negative empty space isn't non productive but, for my taste a bit too much but, I like the shot.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/12/2005 03:19:54 PM
This is destined to be a classic. Very well done.

07/12/2005 11:40:07 AM
This is without competition, my favorite photo in this challenge. I love it. It looks so unposed, and. . . .let's see what else do I love about it besides how natural it looks: the sepia tones, how sharp and focused it is, how cute the people are (sorry, that helps too, you know how beauty sells :), and the composition. There are probably other things, but that's enough to hope this one gets blue in my book. 10

I am sentimental... this reminds me of my younger days.... fabulous captiure of a family moment.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/11/2005 10:34:34 PM
Really captured the moment. There's nothing like a child's enthusiasm. Great composition. You obviously know what you're doing. One of the best, IMO.

Great capture and DOF. Very emotive and certainly speaks "family". It's hard to find much wrong with this shot - really nice composition and I like the muted tones. Great job. 9

  Photographer found comment helpful.

  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/11/2005 12:50:17 AM
Very nice. I wish the waves weren't so blanched out. Maybe darken the whole image a tad (but that's just me). The composition is great.
