    But these shots are taken at the end of that 'golden hour' where it is way to dark to see details. 45 minutes before this is AMAZING light for many more subjects including portraits.

    Just as an FYI - The golden hour refers to the first hour of light and the last hour of light. The light is softer at these times due to the sun's lower angle.
    oh yes.... of course.... but in this golden hour the images were looking rather flat... no clouds for reflection... i was at a higher location up the hill firing away for the whole part of it and deleted most of the series....

    I thought I was finished and was on my way down the hill to the car.... as I was packing up the colours start shifting very quickly... I scurried to the boat launch and set up for these sihlouettes which ended up being the best opportunity the evening offered... I guess the lesson here is not to pack up too soon!!!

    Default trial use of an umbrella

    My grandson bought this umbrella and insisted on trying it out on a beautiful, sunshiny day...So, we sang "Singing in the Rain" at the top of our lungs and had a blast. Most of the photos did not turn out well, but I liked this one.

    Eyes, sharpness and accurate exposure really give this shot great impact.

    It still needs a bit of post clean-up. Off colour edges should be cloned out with the orange background, the bottom distractions need to be cropped out and when you were framing the top and left should have been loosened and given more room in the shot.

    Good capture, but this type of shot is much, much, better in colour.

    Looks great to me in B&W, has a warm and happy feel to the photo.
