nice color of the sky, and the silhouette is a nice touch of your son.

Torgny, hej... I echo what shoturtle wrote, both are really beautiful, but if I may, the second one does it for me. There is some features of the foreground in both pictures that I like... Love your sky, awesome colour. The silhouette can't be beat, it just that pose in the second one is what I like most, the camera seemed to high for the lad in the first... so the second to me is just excellent! As always, thanks for sharing these. Ned

shoturtle,

Eetu


Thank you for viewing and commenting. In the first picture he's walking fastly - the sun is almost down. In the second he has made adjustments with the tripod and the camera also, I think

The colours, especially the blue is somewhat Alasdarian/Walter_S:ish. If it had been a bit brighter it had almost matched the sensational "Norwegian blue" in one of Alasdair's threads

Btw, have you seen "The Dead Parrot Sketch" (Monty Python) where the Norwegian blue plays an important role. It's easily accessed by YouTube

Thanks, Torgny! I will have to check out the Norwegian blue again, thanks for the reminder. Again, what a very, very beautiful shot, mate. I just love the colours. All the best to you and yours. Ned

You have two really beautiful shots here Torgny - I LOVE the colors and the silhuettes of your son!

I have to agree with Ned - #2 is my favourite, it's so calm and peaceful

Too right, you are, Markkus! Torgny, my kind advice is to crop out a little branch on the far right... print and mount this photo... I just look at this and adore what I see in a well-composed photo. Thanks again!

maggo85,

Thank you for your kind words. It was a magic afternoon, well worth to remember for me. We had been out for a cuple of hours. It was very cold but he wanted to some last pictures before we moved on

In a warmed up automobile as i remember it
