Ha....thanks. you and my father were the only ones to observe the bloody finger.I like post #25 from Hem. My "eye" goes instantly to the fish's head and then to the gold reel, then shifts to the muddy boot , then goes to the smiling face, then to the fish's tail..... Perfection in photo composition IMHO..... The wet waders, STIHL hat, bloody thumb along with the angled horizon, all make this a very compelling image. I truly hope this image will be printed and framed. Photographic images often seem insignificant until years go by and they become far more interesting.
