It's not often that I laugh out loud at a photo, but this one really hit the mark :-) The little girl enjoying the ice cream and the long suffering dad just soaking it up (literally and metaphorically). Great catch.

A sky so typical of the last couple of months! The grey, brooding clouds threatening to dump even more water on us. I like the 2 little splashes of yellow daffs. They add a bit of brightness on a dull day.
The positive from the dull day is that the roof of the barn tends to blend into the background.

Not the usual view of The Old Man of Storr, but definitely the only view I'm ever likely to see :-)
I like the idea of including such a large area of sky and cloud to balance the mountainous foreground.
The only problem for me is that the whole image seems to have a bit of a yellow/green colour cast.

I realise that the aperture was chosen to emphasise the man fishing and to throw the rest of the image out of focus, but I feel it has been taken too far here. The white rock in the foreground, and most of the background, almost looks to have been blurred by camera shake (surely not possible at 1/6400th!) and is a real distraction.
I do like the overall composition.

The lighting on the main building in the background is amazing. The whole thing seems to glow.
I'm torn between wanting much more emphasis on the dancers and the wide view which incorporates the whole of the building. I am pleased that you didn't go for the half-way house of cropping the building at around the 2nd balcony to simply make the dancers larger in the image without providing real impact.
On balance I think you've got it right. Overall really nice work.

"Photo quality is not great..." You have to be kidding! To capture a bear fishing would be an achievement. To capture a bear taking the catch to her 2 cubs is incredible. Sure it would be wonderful if you had late light to bring a bit of warmth to the rocks and moss/lichens but that is the realms of dreamland.
It's certainly an image I would be enormously proud to have captured.

Beautifully framed image. The letterbox (panoramic) format suits the subject perfectly. Lighting is also superb as it brings out every bit of detail in the building.
