Father and Son

By shutterbug8156    
I stayed behind of this walk on purpose to capture the wonderful moment of father and son. They are such a great duo.

It's a really charming, beautifully composed moment, with the mystery of the path curving out of sight; it captures the moment. And you've timed the shot to capture the raised foot which always conveys life and movement. But 1/13 second shutter speed is way too slow to stand any chance of real success - you have camera movement and subject movement combined here! At 55mm you need 1/80 second to hand-hold reliably - which would also work reasonably well for the figures as the man is moving away from you not across the frame. Light was obviously not wonderful so that means a higher ISO.
It's easy to grab shots like this impulsively, but worth taking a few moments to check settings. For something like this, moving subject plus fluctuating light, I'd use shutter priority. Remember that it's easier to improve an underexposed picture than a blurred one.
Hope you won't be offended by that.
I'm not offended at all. I appreciate the feed back. Yes I know the shutter speed was too slow but sadly with my husband I have very little time to change things he has a spidey sense when I'm taking a photo of him. I'm going to have to up my game! @mrswoolybill
