Unknown Boy Jumping (Maldives)

By rlack  
This was a charming boy, the son of the bar owner on the tiny maldivian island where we honeymooned. So nice to be able to semi-candidly take shots of him without being accused of being a paedophile!

This is a lovely portrait of childhood fun. Last month's PP had a good article about making depth of field shallower digitally (article with the ice hockey player pic), and I wonder if it would be worth blurring the background more to make him stand out more.

I wonder if a tighter crop would help as he seems to small in the shot. still include some background to set the scene and also crop out what looks like a crane.

Hi Richard

Did you agree with any of the comments made above. it would be good to hear if you agree or disagree.

It's good to get feedback on advice given and encourages people to comment on your work in the future.

I like the fact you left somewhere for the boy to jump into - thought the composition was spot on. The bridge/platform is slightly burn't out so it loses a little detail in the wood - but a very minor point. Excellent!
