Hi folks, not posted here for some time. I got a new camera about a month ago, shot this with it. (Canon EOS 350D)

Overall, this isn't a bad shot, but is not visually effective. A wider view may have been more effective, but as is, it probably should be cropped tighter. The arms do not add anything to the composition and create more distracting elements.

The eyes are attracted to brighter elements in this scene so I've burned the background slightly for demonstration. Also, I've cropped it tighter to place more emphasis on the boy's face.

Thanks for sharing.

Many thanks for taking the time to look at my shot, now that you have pointed out a few things to improve it I've compaired the 2 images and I see what you mean. The arms do distract the eyes.



Many thanks & kind regards Del
