We met up with my sister and kids last weekend... apparently I should have stopped them rather than standing there taking pictures...

What?? No way. And if they were there why were they helping you to set up shots, passing you drinks and food while you 'worked' :mad: Women! :rolleyes: ;)

I love this shot! The composition is excellent. I think I like the subdued colour too.

Very nice pic Richard, and very cute too. Really like the PP on this.

Thanks for all the comments guys. :)

Ma- I simply can't understand why the ladies didn't support me while I was working.

Bambi - I love photographing people, although most of my family is camera shy, I think you are right' sometime its the shots that tell the stories that are the most interesting even if they might not be the most 'technically correct' shots.

PP was sharpening on different layers, overlay layer (for dodge and burn), ran a highkey filter, and then I duplicated the image and turned it to B&W with a sepia tint. Finally I blended this with the original.

(I'm sure there are better ways to do things but I'm just playing.)

Love this shot. You really caught the true nature of a child's non ending curiosity. I'd like to have seen the boy in the foreground in focus but being grab shot its difficult to make those adjustments on the fly. Love the tonal values here.....gives it an old timey feel. Love it!!! :)

Thanks guys,

yeh your right infocus, this was a pick up and shoot shot, not a lot of time to check settings and reconfigure the camera. :)
