I like 1 & 2. Good use of the sun for hair light.

3 & 4 seem out of place with the jacket and football by the creek.

Angle of #4 seems weird after progressing thru the images. If I would have seen it first, I probably wouldn't have mentioned it? Might be direction of stream? I dunno exactly but my mind picks it up pretty quick.

I think #1 would have benefited with the use of a reflector low camera left to light his face. And a flash, even the popup, probably would have helped the rest. They just don't have that 'pop' to them you're so good at.

#1: My favorite, but I think I would have preferred a portrait orientation. The golden glow of the hair is pretty cool. :mrgreen:

#2: Bokeh is great, but I'm just not a fan of the angle, unless it is absolutely necessary. Just my preference. Also, his expression on #1 is better than #2.

#3: I like this one overall, but I wish his hand wasn't cut off. It seems like an odd place to crop/shoot it, I would have preferred a wider angle, or again, a portrait orientation may have helped. Great expression/smile though.

#4: The angle of the shot just kindof kills it for me. It feels like I'm confused on which way I should be looking at it.

I think we all struggle with #4 and water flowing up.... It's one of those 'un-natural' things our brain has a hard time processing.
