Some nice shots. I really like #3 with your son and the splash.

Thanks.

I wonder if the shot would have had more impact have I caught the splash in focus instead?

I also wonder if the Canada Geese shot could have been composed better?

For those whom are curious, I found what the bug's name was: Tibicen canicularis (Dogday cicada).

I am NO expert but I would say it depends on what you wanted to draw attention to, your son or what he was doing..

In this shot I would say the splash in focus would have been more effective.. However, if it was a frontal shot (and you were in a boat..LOL) then the focus should be on him....

I am curious to what those with waaaaayyy more savvy then me have to say..(and that's just about everybody else...)
