Went walking with the family and happened upon this young man, throwing stones, doing stretches, and basically strutting his stuff for his lady.

**Update, a few months later: Thanks, all. I recognize this really isn't a great photo. But if in my defense I can point out what I really liked about it... :)

There's a sequence in the corners. The rock in the bottom left is a "point". The tree in upper left is a "line". The bike rack in upper right is a "plane". Then the bottom right should have "volume". The dude had wandered out of the ideal spot, thus bringing a little life into the image. **shrugs** Yeah, I'm a geek, why do ya ask?

Hints of tai chi. Fills the bill for me. Agree about cropping out the green grass so we see more figure and less background.

Interesting take on the challenge, though I don't think it fits I think he is skipping stones. I would have cropped out the top part of the image or used a shallow dept of field the blur it out. I would have also tried to include some more of the reflection.

I might have cropped this one a little tighter. The background seems to deter from the photo.

He looks more like he's skipping rocks than dancing.
