A girl watching kids taking a dip at the sea. Taken last July 6, 2008.
Please critique, thank you... Somehow I'm proud of this shot, but I just had one (only one!) person tell me my angle was wrong.
She said I could have chosen to get straight behind the girl and shoot so I could've included the horizon. It was the ideal angle and I thought of that, however, directly behind her is an incline with a rottweiler tied nearby. If I ascended that for that angle, I bring myself to close proximity to the rotti. Also, there were low coconut trees that made the ideal shot impossible.
What do you think? Other critiques, of course, are definitely welcome to improve my craft. Thank you.
