When I look at other people's photography, some of the shots I like best are very simple: in both technique and execution. But these are the hardest shots to do well, because they stand or fall on the basis of the very simplicity that makes them worthwhile: there's no immediate 'wow' factor, the content is often quite mundane, and the style or approach is often unremarkable.
This was an attempt at a simple shot, and is of my young nephew attempting to wield a cricket bat. And I guess that it kind of works, but isn't exactly what I was after. That said, I'm not sure exactly what I did want from this shot, but I get the feeling that something is missing. Let me know if you have any thoughts.
