    Father and Son Fishing, BW

    I came across this picture and originally took it in color. After playing with various crops and development angles I decided it looked best as a pure black an white. I hope you enjoy it and look forward to your comments.

    Hi Karm,
    I like this, nice and sharp outline, plus I like the overall composition.
    Well done.

    This would make a great note card being sent to any one who enjoys fishing or to any father-and-son team.

    Karm although this "threshold" technique is such a cliche, in this case it works particular well!

    I like the fishing rod of the child being partly white in front of the father giving continuity to the figures. And the reflections work great this way.

    Hi Karm


    Impressive.
    Photography pared down to the bone. I like that.

    One little niggle though, the neck of the boy looks distorted, like a reflection and automatically draws my eyes.
    But in this pic all the natural reflections and distortions occur below the mirror line.
    I find it disconcerting and, unless it is a wanted effect, I would correct it.

    Cheers

    Hi Wolf. The distortion on the neck is the boy's shirt collar. Help me understand your second comment concerning the mirror line. All reflections are what appeared in the original photograph.

    With mirror line I mean the line where the reflection of the boat and the people start.

    Anyway, great pic. And gave me some ideas for the white balance of some of my pics.
