Taken at Sant' Anton, Malta's Presidential Palace Gardens, this (I'm assuming) father and son were walking along a path in the gardens and I wanted to record the moment. I hope you like the end result.

Greatly captured mate.

It reminds me of a similar picture I've taken a while back of my wife and kid. But this is really nice in color as the red totally attracts the eye further in.


Bravo mate Wink


Cheers.

As ever, thanks Nathan for your comment and your vote. Smile

When I see opportunities like these, the impulse to take the picture rushes through me. On this occassion, I was lucky enough to have the correct gear on me. I'll upload another father-son image at a later stage... It's another candid taken at the Malta International Airshow earlier this year. Will probably be tomorrow's upload! Smile

@Wenzu, I think I actually recall the image you're referring to in fact. Thanks for the comment and the appreciation. Smile

It's a good evocative image, bringing to the fore front one's sentimentality and forgotten memories, each father has at some time done this! be it with a Son or Daughter, mine are in their thirty's and forty's, but I still remember now your photo has jogged my faint old memory, nicely taken good composition with a nice lead in, regards Leon.GrinGrinGrinGrinGrinGrinGrin

I like this, the focus being on the foerground rather than the figures actually works quite well, even though its an unusual thing to do.

Thanks Jellyfire, glad you like the end result. Shot this on S-mode, with ISO restricted to 400, so camera opted for the maximum aperture possible on the lens (f/5.6). As a result, had a relatively shallow depth of field and the man and child ended up in the blurred area when composed with rule of thirds in mind. Have to admit it was a bit of a happy accident that the end-picture turned out like this. With a deeper field, I would probably end up blurring the foreground in post-processing, but the effect would be slightly unrealistic I guess.
