The only problem I have with the background is the one car in the driveway. The boy does not separate from it well. Also it would have been nice if the shadow of the tree did not break up the shadows of the boy. However I have the feeling that if that tree was not there what we would be seeing is flare. This brings up a point. The background in this image might very well be the result of exactly what JohnG is talking about. This might have been the best background in the area. Moving might well have been worse or even dangerous. And moving the cars might not have bee an option. Sometimes you have to get the best shot you can with what you’re given.


As for cropping I disagree with that entirely. Though there are a couple points where the boy’s “pose” are almost identical I think you need the entire sequence. That what makes the shot interesting.



Over all I like the image

Nicely done! And I agree - it really helps to de-emphasize the cars. I like it.

You probably already know this, but you can take another picture from the same exact angle when the cars are not there and use that to remove the cars from your current picture. Photoshop elements (and probably Photoshop) has a new simple to use Photomerge tool that will enable you to remove the cars by replacing it with the part of the new picture without the car. You can download a free trial from adobe.
