Just saw this little boy sitting in a hole alone while all of the family was sitting on the wall in front of him talking.

Greetings from the Critique Club Monica!


I like your comment about the quick sand!! Love the way you have captured the little boy looking up as if in a dream. Possibly a more square crop would have helped this shot, eliminating the shadow in the foreground.


Lovely light on the sand and little boys back. I like your DOF, for me this is technically a good image.

My personal thought:

I am surprised this didnt score higher, I think it fits the challenge well and technically its a good image but maybe lacks a little wow factor? Keep snapping Monica!

If you've got any questions about this critique, please feel free to contact me via the PM system.

The shadow behind the boy is a little distracting but overall it is a nice shot.
