Hi, I was outside trying to take some pictures of some flowers when I saw these young boys a couple of backyards over trying tocapture something. I hollered over to them and asked them what thay were doing, when they told me they were"looking forfrogs." I had already captured the picture.I thought it wasso typical of two young boys on a summer day. bentleysmom

To be young again and your only worry was if you could catch a frog. Come to think of it why would I want to go through that again, growing up was hard enough way back then, now it would be even harder. Nice shot.

You captured the emotion of the scene; one feels a part of the picture. Great job. The quality of the photo is wonderful, but bringing the people who look at it into theworld of the boys is exceptional.

Nice work the boys seem oblivious of the world around them getting a natural pose is a plus in my book
I like the composition too.......

Hi All, I'm glad that you all enjoyed the photo. I know I still have a long way to go...but the encouragement is great. I have been looking around in my area at the Jr. colleges and colleges for some photography classes. They are either full or they are offered "online".....right now I'll stick with you all to tell me what I'm doing wrong. I'm out taking pictures at least 4 or 5 days a week. I'm also reading some books.....I'm going to keep searching for a digital photo class, surely I'll find something. I appreciate everyones time and comments and I welcome constructive criticism. bentleysmom
