Let's see. You've broken the rule of thirds x 2-- subjects are centered in the frame and the horizon does too. And it works anyway. Wonderful. Being a grandfather, I project myself straight into the image and see my dreams.

Nice idea and tells a lovely story. But i'd have gotten lower to give it a more interesting angle, and would have moved right and turned left to seperate the people from the Sun and avoid having everything so central. Love the little lad holding the Dad's hand. Very touching. Great emotion.

Yes personally speaking I would have had the subject & horizon off centre. But rules can be broken and it can still work! Also, I would have got rid of the burnt out area in the sky . . . . just a thought. Grin

Thanks for the comments and feedback; as it happens it is actually myself in the photo with my son, my wife (upon my request as I feature in very few photos) took the shot and has no interest in photography. So considering that fact I think she did very well.

Photographing into the sun will almost always result in blown highlights and to crop out those in the above shot would have meant losing the lovely rays, I also chose to ignore the noncompliance with rule of thirds. The reason in large part for not making a greater effort to correct the short comings is because it is a photo of one of those family days on holidays that will always be remembered; in this instance I don't really care that photographically it doesn't measure up. Having said that, if I'd been on the other side of the camera the comp would have been better Smile

Thanks again,

I think she did a good job and it's art. May Not be everyone's cup of tea. But that's good!GrinGrin
