Beautiful composition, and I like this peaceful summer atmosphere !
aww i want to go there T_T I grew up in a place that looks like that. Used to spend all our summers swimming in the river and having picnics T_T <-now I live in a desert. It makes me miss home ^^ Excellent photo!
Beautifully lit! Wish I had been there...
This truely captures the spirit of summer. It is so beconing.
Thanks, I think this is truly one of my best photos. It's not a preplanned photo in fact none of my photos are, they are all caught in the moment. I never knew the kids or the fact they be canoeing right past me. But the fact that all 3 are young boys with their shirts off in the right place was perfection. This image made my heart sing when I opened the raw image and saw this. Such a fleeting moment caught..I probably couldn't recreate it if I tried.
Staged photos look staged. I agree capturing those slices of life are the best. Capturing the moment is more than taking a photo of a pretty spot. It tells a story and brings the viewer into it. The fact that this may not be the most beautiful spot on the river even adds to the moment. Love it. Good luck.
Ha, have been there once, too. Nice light.
