My best friend panning for gold in a creek. We decided to go out and try this, and it just happened to coincide with the challenge. Didn't find any gold, but maybe I'll get a decent score.

Brent, thanks for the comment my beach entry, thought I would give a comment back. I think like the other commenters the writing on the bucket hurts the photo and I also think that even though you are obvioulsy trying to find gold your score may have been hurt by not having gold in it. But I think the way you composed the shot was well done and good luck next time. Thanks again for the comment.

I really like this composition, and the title sells it. Well done!

Nice concept and well executed with the exception of that bright white bucket. It just keeps drawing the eye and distracting from the rest of the image, especially centered in the frame like that.

the bucket detracts... a lot, but I like the idea and the old time feel to the photo

I like the framing and sepia tones you chose, the stark whiteness of the bucket is a bit distracting to the overall feel though. imo.

Details... In any set up shot, details are the key to the shot. You want to have only the details needed to make the shot work. Any thing else is a distraction. The writing on the bucket is a distraction. Everything else works to a tee!

Feelings... This rocks! I can smell the water and the dirt... Most of the 'feeling' in the shot I think is from the awesome tones that you've chosen. You made me feel like I was there except for the fact that I'm sitting on a modern bucket.
I can't wait to see who this is and what else you've done...
