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!
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.
