It's cold and windy here now - please remind me of summer fun - which in my mind includes to bare your feet. Please concentrate on fun! Second is creativity. Your photo should comply to a planned concept (as opposed to snapshots).

I discovered these 2 boys playing on the Jungle Gym in our beautiful Laisley Park. The harbor behind them was prostine and I hated to exclude it because it gave a sense of place to the photo. So rather than isolate the boys with apeture I used a vignette in post processing to play down the background without it becoming indistinct. For this I used Color Effex Pro by NIK software. I also used Vevisa (by NIK) to gently brighten the faces of both boys who were looking down away from the sun.
