Summer Spirit by photocell Summer Spirit by photocell
This is my 100th submission here. This photo was actually taken last year when I was on holiday in Turkey. I am so looking forward to my holiday this summer. So in need of a long break from work :)

I took this shot in a hurry because I wanted to capture this moment exactly and there was no time to perfect the composition. As a result I ended up with a big distracting object in the top left corner of the frame. Also, the sunshades on the left were near the centre and they didn't look right. So I had to edit the shot heavily in PS to get the look I wanted.

What is the art of photography? It is many things. Nice framing, composition, colours, etc. But for me what strikes me the most about photography is capturing true emotions, so that the viewer can feel them aswell. I often compare it to a poem (or song), that brings out the best or worst in you.

The only thing I can say is that you captured something here. I'm glad you were fast enough to still get it.

I love the way the focus is on the red wood thing (!) and the rest is a pleasant fond memory blur. I love the relaxed naturalness in this, the way her ponytail is coming undone slowly and is just 'up' instead of styled perfectly into a ponytail. I love the little boys action and joy in the moment as he struts his march across the grass to the beach.

So many cute feelings and observations to be had, so very personable.
Wonderfull.

I think you put it into words so perfectly. That's exactly how I feel about this photo.

this is a very potential snapshot..my only concern is i wish the boy was not under the shed, because he is the main object in my opinion..but this photo still makes me smile, that is a cute movement of the boy from behind..nicee

I know. There are so many things I wish were different in this shot, yet I can't help but loving it for some strange reason :shrug:
