The concept it good, the moment you captures is very special, but I wonder how would it looked with a bit of sharpness. It gives me the impression that the photo is taken from a big distance, because of the blur. But it`s just my oppinion :)

Good light,

Beautiful scene and GREAT photo Art!! The composition, the colours and the sharpness are excellent.

Hi Art.
What a charming family picture and very suitable for Mothers Day. I like very impressive strong horizon cropping, attractive spring dun light and colours. My kind regards and TFS.
