This really is a brilliant picture because of the setting, the people and the high quality. The family is on a trip on the water and it must have been very difficult to make this picture, with that equipment on such a small boat. Especially to get the lighting perfectly. But the photographer made something very beautiful. The family members are completely focused. Even the smallest boy, with his amazing hat. Father in the middle makes the most impression. Maybe thanks to his mustache and the fancy cigarette pipe. The sunscreen protects against rain and too much sunlight, but it also contributes to the unique composition of this photo.
