    Very sharp, with the action caught well. The lighting gives a sense of calmness despite the action in the scene. I would have liked the boy and the stick shifted slightly to the left, but that is a minor point.

It took me a moment to reconcile your subject with the challenge note: "not made or caused by humankind." Well clearly the water, stick, and ground were not made or caused by humankind!

    Composition to die for. At that age having fun is so natural - later in life it will be constricted by so many rules.

    Thank you for your comments. I know that some people will not think that this photo is appropriate to the theme, but the explanation given by Johncomyn in the forum stated the following "Could be a Mother breast feeding vs bottle feeding... You could take the theme "Natural" Literally or Figuratively".

Whatever the outcome, I really enjoyed watching these two lads having fun with their Mom down by the beach.

    Good take on the theme. It's a very natural scene.

    A super shot! But let's take a look at the challenge theme "...not made ... by humankind." Strictly spoken a child would not qualify as the main part of the entry. But I couldn't resist placing it in my TT. :-)
