Something Silly - Boys Will be Boys by Walter Ross

June 2020 - Something Silly - Boys Will be Boys

About the Image(s)

This was taken quite a while back when visiting a small local village while on a vacation near the Maldives. It was taken with a Nikon D750 f/6 1/500 Iso 200. Right in the middle of the day under cloudless skies, the boys were happy to give me somewhat mischievous grins when I wandered by looking for shade from the hot sun. Probably just happy to be at recess from school. I cropped and fixed the skin tones a bit with PS. I left the focus as is as I liked the effect. Always makes me smirk too when I see this photo.

Silly facial expressions! Why didn't I think of that when I was looking for suitable images this month?! I was thinking of silly "objects" only. I'm enjoying the emotion I see in the main boy's face. Makes me smile, too. You caught a real connection between the boy(s) and you (the camera). They look happy to see you!   Posted: 06/17/2020 13:56:53

Happy children are priceless, and your boys are wonderful. The poses and expressions are perfect. One can almost guess what their little inside joke might be. They are very natural. Goos job.   Posted: 06/17/2020 16:30:41

Yes made me smirk too! Great image and you have captured the personality of 'Boys being boys'! I like the focus too and kudos to you for getting the eyes tack sharp.   Posted: 06/18/2020 15:17:08

This is a "happy" photo. You captured the moment - it looks like the boy in the foreground has "just done something", and the other boy enjoyed it. Good exposure. This is one instance where if the boy in the background was sharp it would compete with the main subject.   Posted: 06/19/2020 08:49:56
