In thisscene, the sun reflected off the waterdominates the

scene, taking theattention away from the children in the

photo.

It reminds me ofsome of the first rules of photography going

back to my box brownie days :-)always position yourself

with the sun coming from behind you onto the subject if you

are shooting outdoors, unless you are trying to get a silhouette,

also if there is sunlightand thelight is at the wrong angle, without

fill flash, you end up with unflattering facial shadows if people are

in the scene you are shooting :idea:.............musket.

Musket, thanks again for taking your time for a generous commentwhich is a good reminder for those who will inevitably encounter suchshooting scenarios

Well this was taken with my A510 (3.2 mp) camera whose flash unit was not working, when the battery of the S70 dried up! Actually my main subject was the 'silvery scenery' in which I wanted to add my kids also with some compromise ; )

Below is another shot from some distance..

Well I do agree that the sun does take away from the main subject of your kids (nice looking pair too) but in order to take that shot from the other side you would have to be 100 feet tall.:G
