* Greetings from the Critique Club *

Hi Gerry. What a nice candid capture you have taken here. It's definately a nice beach silhouette shot and the golden colour reflecting off the water indicates late afternoon.

The main thing that bothers me about this photo is where the 'brother' is positioned in relation to the frame. It's very hard to tell if you could of used another crop without seeing the original photo but I find that he's just too close to the edge of the frame. Someone even mentioned cropping him out altogether. That was another possibility perhaps?

You've used a nice depth of field to keep the water nicely in focus across the whole photo which has worked well. As I mentioned earlier, the colour of the sun reflecting on the water is fantastic.

It's always hard to say why a photo scores what it does. I've always believed that a photo gets voted what the people think it deserves. You've done well with this shot and should be proud of it. Best of luck with your future challenges!
