what I like most of this photo is the story. You can actually see the wheels turning in his head as he approaches the crab. #9508578

Chris Ebben July 05, 2011

And the crab saying "go on, have a go!" A well timed, full framed image^..^= #9508894

Phyllis A. Houghton level-deluxe July 05, 2011

Make duplicates of this one. It is a treasure. #9508995

Irene Colling level-classic July 05, 2011

Your composition is text book perfect. The boy lies on the one third line, the background wave cuts across the photo just right and the crab is placed perfectly to counter balance the vertical line of the boy.

An exceptional story telling image.

Excellent work Laura. #9509582

Thank you Dale, Chris, Phyllis, and Irene! Your kind words mean so much. #9510590

Diane Underwood July 06, 2011

I agree with all the above.. My first thought was , "who is the most scared , the crab or the boy hahahha?" Love the expression on the boy. Great job. #9512251
