Those water lilies are enormus, Anitava, and I can't help wondering what the boys are going to do with them. You suggest that they are picking them for fun.

I don't feel that black and white is the best choice here, and would appreciate seeing the colour version, if you have one. It's carefree happiness in water full of flowers, and I simply feel that colour might coney that better.

I would love to have been able to see the child behind your nearest one. It may only have been a second or two that you needed to wait, or a slightly different angle, so that all 3 children could be seen. Three is a very good number for a composition, and this way you would have captured the three all at different distances, which looks very good.

I have done a modification where I placed the closest child on a thirds line, and the horizon on a thirds line too. I then made an automatic adjustment to the brightness and contrast.

It may be that the conversion to mono from colour could be done better; it has resulted in areas that could be bright being very dark. It may have been a bit underexposed possible to start with.

I would also like to see the original. That whole scene is very nice.

Mod loaded also.

A third request for the colour original... You can upload it as a modification.

It's a wonderful subject, and your low viewpoint is perfect. As Pamela says, it would be good to see the third boy in full. I wonder if you took any other shots?

The main problem that I see is that you were photographing into the light - so the camera's brain was tricked into underexposing. But more seriously the faces were in shadow because the light was behind them.

All the above comments are sound - and I like this anyway...

Willie's mods show the potential.

Colour would be nice, but the mono would not be bad with a brighter conversion. The impression is under exposure with blocked shadows and thatis what I might expect. You show manual, so how did you arrive at the exposure?
