Had to get out of the apartment and a friend said let's go to lunch in Ocean City, NJ. I said "YES" that update button is beginning to work my nerves....she said "What?" I said I would explain on the way.

Ocean City is a very family oriented summer results for Philadelphia and PA residents. Also NY from and NJ and others to, I suppose. It is, perhaps, an oddity in this day and age: It is dry. You have to buy your liquor and bring it with or go to Summers Point to get it and take it back. Great!

The people in this scene feel like visual accessories. Are the birds the intended subject? If the composition delineated a clear subject this image would be stronger.

It took me a minute to realize what the subject was. Too much to look at.

I am not sure what is supposed to convey family here. The people on the beach? How do we know they are family? I don't see anything here that conveys the sense of family to me. Not even the birds. The tall grass in front is distracting as well. I find myself looking at the birds and the grass and not even noticing the beach.

So many things to look at in this image, its confusing. There are 2 subjects facing the viewer, birds flying through, many colored umbrellas, a pier, grasses in the FG. Its just hard to know where to look. I do think this shot could work, but not from this angle.

Hey i grew up 45 minutes from there in delaware! its changed alot. ok...now on to my real comment:
fo me this photo would have been better for family if u had zoomed in a little more to the father and daughter feeding the birds. I know that O.C. is a family "hot spot" but most voters dont even know where it is. there is great colors and dof is perfect for me. a definate "meets the challenge" for me...good luck 7
