Its seems like only yesterday i was in this boy's place playing with the muddy sands of the beach , does bring good memories .
The instance i saw this piece of art i felt attracted to it mainly because of the warm tone that surrounds it . Very beautiful , the angel is great , DOF is perfect . The drops of mud from the boys hand seem attractive to the viewer . So natural and spontaneous nonetheless does bring a smile to my face . The background brings life to the picture however i would of appreciated this exquisite photo more if the background was some how wider in the sense that more activity was going on , perhaps not cropping the photo but leaving it in its seemingly original horizontal state
Joyous and incredible! Brings you back to the days where we all used to be young and careless in the sand. Definetly has that nostalgic relatable sense and makes you wish you were there, finding sand crabs and digging your feet into the sand. The contrast and coloring is simply enjoyable and bright! The background is a little distracting from the child however, but at the same time it adds a "busy" sense of that summer beach cheer! I love the slight sparkle of the sand just behind the boy, it just makes you feel the heat and want to jump right in the ocean water!
Beautiful use of color which takes us to a timeless place of childhood. The woman and the boy in the background distract from our central focus and in doing so somewhat break the magic spell of your wonderful photo. This is a good time for cloning. Life outside the studio offers such wonderful subject matter. However, like in street photography we must deal with what distracts from our statement. Your work in general is superb and your passion is a true gift.
