Boy and the bullring

Got a thin skin? Then look elsewhere. Post a link to an image that you've made, and invite others to offer their critiques. Honesty is encouraged, but please be positive in your constructive criticism. Flaming and just plain nastiness will not be tolerated. Please note that this is not an area for you to showcase your images, nor is this a place for you to show-off where you have been. This is an area for you to post images so that you may share with us a technique that you have mastered, or are trying to master. Typically, no more than about four images should be posted in any one post or thread, and the maximum size of any side of any image should not exceed 950 px.

Forum rules
Please note that image critiquing is a matter of give and take: if you post images for critique, and you then expect to receive criticism, then it is also reasonable, fair and appropriate that, in return, you post your critique of the images of other members here as a matter of courtesy. So please do offer your critique of the images of others; your opinion is important, and will help everyone here enjoy their visit to far greater extent.

Also please note that, unless you state something to the contrary, other members might attempt to repost your image with their own post processing applied. We see this as an acceptable form of critique, but should you prefer that others not modify your work, this is perfectly ok, and you should state this, either within your post, or within your signature.

Images posted here should conform with the general forum guidelines. Image sizes should not exceed 950 pixels along the largest side (height or width) and typically no more than four images per post or thread.

Please also ensure that you have a meaningful location included in your profile. Please refer to the FAQ for details of what "meaningful" is.

Just returned home from 3+ weeks abroad. This trip we visited Spain, UAE, Singapore and Thailand. Mainly work but some sightseeing days thrown in. We did a tour of the bullring in Seville, and during the tour, when the grumpy Spanish guide was doing her best to make us disinterested, my eye caught this little fellow, wandering away from his dad, just happy to be able to play in the sand.

Great shot and that young boy makes it. I would have put him in one of the two thirds, but that's me. I also like it as it is. I have encountered tour guides like the one you mentioned, but I am grateful because they forced me to pay more attention to what I was interested.

Ozi,

Great image, with a touch of the influence of Matt subtly thrown in, with the child looking "out" of the picture. Breaks all of the "rules", but wonderfully so.

There were several other photos of the same scene. Another one had the little fella playing in the sand, but this one I thought was funny. He had no interest in what the rest of us were doing.
