    I like the idea, i think maybe a tighter crop would bring the eye to the child more which would increase the imapct for me.

    I messed around with the crop on this one for ages - I know what you mean! I thought that if cropped too tight on the left there was no space for him to "run in to", spoiling the movement. If I cropped any tighter on the right, I lost the footprints story. I wanted to retain the whole story - spade in, walk to sea, wave, run.

    I really like this. I think it would be perfect if your son was looking to camera with a worried look on his face. But still a top shot.

    Thanks! Yes, a worried face would be good, but have you tried directing a 2.5 year old??? :)

    I like that you can't see his face, it's like he's checking the progress of the tide, or has just done a double take.

    I like it

    He was actually surprised by (and running away from) the crashing wave!

    He's a hilarious little dude, and this was his very first encounter in his tiny little life with a crashing wave. I love it, because it captures that fraction of a second learning moment.

    Ta, Zone!
