Discovering the creek

This was taken with a point & shoot camera and it was one of my first cameras so I really didn't know to much about photography at the time.

The picture quality is poor,but the subject matter is interesting and I like the composition. Looks like the highlights are blown in the shirt and on the log.

Quality of the image aside (pixelation, poor exposure, soft focus), I'd like to focus on the composition here as a learning tool for you and others. Regardless of the quality of the camera, you can always compose a picture for impact.

This photo has a nice, whimsical side to it and some wonderful lines. As the person reaches out into the creek and holds onto branch, a nice diagonal line is formed. Unfortunately, some of the impact of that line is lost in the extraneous clutter in the background. Judicious cropping would make this ordinary snapshot into a very nice shot. Try to fill the frame with your subject while still retaining the story behind the image. In this case, you really don't need the trees in the background and I would crop the upper half of this photo completely out and trim some off the bottom and both sides to give it a pleasing balance.

Recognize, of course, that this is only my opinion on how to improve this shot and you may like having the forest in the background.
