    I hope you appreciate my latest comments on Adirondack Gal's entry as much. Of course, I didn't specify which entry most resembled your personality!!!

    Jade: Never thought of that - good comparison. This is one of those shots that I continue to like despite the low votes (of course I get a lot of those :-DDD Anyhew - your comments and support were very much appreciated.

    You know this immediately brought to mind the sort of candid-figures-in-perfect-composition of Old Finn's shot:

or brown4's entry:

    fc - Thanks for commenting. I left the blue exactly as it was in the hope of getting one extra vote LOL. Seriously - I was fascinated by the way the colours helped the photo. I'm trying to find out where this group was from so that I can give them the photos I took. I used up a whole roll :-)

    love the mix of colours . the subject matter is also interesting as in the UK all locks open or closed have to be portaged by canoes.
one the main canoe events is a race between Devizes in Wiltshire to Westminster bridge by canoe
a local one did the triop in 17hrs 15mins and still didnt win.

    Jade: Thanks very much. When I saw this I figured that you of all people might just see the same things that I did and you have not disappointed. I sat on the locks and watched these kids for about half an hour - it was delightful to see all the interactions between them. It was also very frustrating watching the kids and the boats drifting out of alignment every time I thought I had a good group. I don't expect this to finish high but it is one of my most satisfying pictures.

    I confess to liking this so much because of the composition and the colour. It is wonderfully orchestrated despite its seeming complexity into very simple elements nearly perfectly placed. Because it looks so absolutely natural, and because it is so complex, it is, of course, candid; but the composition for me appears so good it seems genuinely painterly (ie. mimics an artistic creation as much as any reality).
