[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This was taken in Swansae Bay on an unexpectedly bright day. This little boy caught my eye as he ran towards the sea alone and stood with arms thrown back as if shouting at the sea and challenging it. I liked the thought and so attempted the photo.

Hello, Rachel.

Is this a reincarnation of Canute, albeit a couple of hundred miles away from Bosham? Did he jump in? Did the sea go back at his command? Who knows?

A nice sharp picture but that little boy is perhaps just a bit too distant. Geting in closer to him might have helped to add a little bit more to the drama. I don't mean a longer focal length - I just mean getting closer.

Still, good colours and excellent sharpness too!

Keep them coming!
