A kind of follow up to my last posting ,this one taken two days later . I like to be around water ,be it at the seaside , lakes , rivers , no matter where water is present for me it is a compelling environment that i find productive photography wise .
Here i picture a group of children entering the cool waters of Choinière réservoir in Parc de la Yamaska , Quebec . As in my previous photo i have cropped to exclude the other side of the lake with no reference to land or sky , taken on a rather cooler July day , except that the kids did not experience rain like my fishermen in the previous post just cooler weather but who can resist taking a swim when you are a playful 6-10 year old kid .
Played a bit with Photoscape to get this , crop and a gentle bloom for some ambience , black and white conversion , sharpening ,
Thanks for reviewing this photo ,

Hi Carol
Poetic image, where we can feel the «personnel limks» of this childreen first summer bath in the beatch.
Very well composed with a perfect bright and contrast and an elegant b/w presentation full of poetry and mood.
Congrats again, mb

Olá, Olá, Ol+a
I hope you had a good time.
About your photo...I am sure that you know that I would love it. Very cool scene...What a wonderful age...to stay in water with so lovely mood. Love the sharpness and the special light...better than singing in the rain...I don´t know ...I love it.
Um abraço

Very nicely captured moment. I like the soft focus and glow
effect on the kids. Very artistic looking. TFS.

Hi Carol,

What a lovely shot from these cute children!
The mood is immense and B/W treatment to the picture worked well.
A summer day is well shown in spte of the fact that the waters at that time was cool.
Well shown charm and enjoyment!

Have a nice weekend.

Kind regards,
