I love everything about this photograph. The depth and the textures of the water in the foreground and background frame the scene beautifully. The bright colors of the pails stand out (how perfect that 3 are red with one teal) against a neutral background. The positions of the boys -- all standing a row but each in a completely different stance. The beautiful, curved swirls of water created as the boys toss the water from the buckets giving the photo yet another painterly dimension. The creme-de-la-creme is you have captured a wonderful moment -- children playing and having a terrific time. A day they will always remember. Congratulations on taking an absolutely fabulous photograph!
