Re: Be nice, but be honest

The area on the right is a part of the scene, as this is not a close portrait, nor meant to be. It has a painterly effect to it because of the golden hour sun and the beautiful color reflections in the dark water. The position of the subject fulfills the rule of thirds. The boy was relaxed an hunkered down and just looked my way when I spoke to him. He was previously really endulged in watching for a fish to bite. If it had been cropped more the rule of thirds would not have been fuldilled. The photo is a great one and involved a lot of luck. I have a 16x24 hanging on my family room wall. He is my grandson and there is not enough money to buy that photo.

And that, really is why we take photos. You got the photo you want and cherish. All else is personal preference.
