The scene is real. For some reason the left side had a purplish tint to it. I tried to get it bluer, but I did a less than perfect shot. But that sky was really there behind him. He was bouncing on a trampoline. Here's another, unedited shot.
That is one beautiful picture.
You gave it the perfect title. It looks like there's a big struggle going on to hold back the tears.
Beautiful photo! Beautiful child! I was pretty sure I wasn't going to win when I saw this.
Thank you Octane. He's a lot of fun, and he never turns me down for pictures.
Incredible photograph, Rod. It looks like it could be a national flag.
Thank you SigmaChrome.
Thanks Rodrigue, Debankur and PTNikkor for your kind words.
I wouldn't have been surprised at all if this won. I'm scratching my head.
Thanks very much, Ms Barb!
