Photos that are striking and could be a painting

I saw a story on my home page for MSN today about a guy that collects odd but striking photos of all kinds and ages.  It reminded me of a great one I took of Cliff, Grace and Charlie when we rented a house in Playa Del Carmen, Mexico.  They were in the pool when a big storm moved in.  I just had to post it for you all to see.  I love it.  In fact it's going to be my next sketch for now.  Maybe I'll do a painting of it some day.

Every once in a while you see a photo and it says PAINTING.

Of course I would change some of the composition to make it work better.  They're too spread out.  Incidentally, I did that with my last painting, "My Paradise".  I completely took the horse that's on the right and moved it from the left-then overlapped it with the horse with the kitty. It made it flow better.  Plus I used the "Golden Mean" when I organized the focal point.  I'll talk about that later (if I haven't already-must go back and check).
