    Default tu squared.

    I was trying to decide if I wanted to be critiqued or not... what the heck, go for it.

    This is the grandson again. Humoring me and my weird sense of what ever with the juxtaposition of a very, very boy in a tutu.

    Nice job TT. I really liket his. The eyes are perfect. Great POV. This is an image that proves that family can be the best thing to take pictures of. It is something I need to work on myself. Shots like this are inspiration to try out new things. Good work!

    Photography is more than just taking a picture and freezing the action, or leaving the shutter open. It is more than orchestrating the image with the stroke of a brush. Its the realization and explanation that reality is an isolated experience in which only a specific individual can comprehend during any given time period. - Your Truly!

    JJ thanks so much! My grandson is my favorite subject. He is finally to the age that he will pose for me for a short time. Last fall was a different story. With kids, you cycle in and out of windows of a child's willingness to sit still long enough for a session. That is why most of my shots of the little guy are candids... secret is out!

    nice capture - really love the eyes! i think the right side could be cropped, get rid of the dead space & focus straight in on his face. beautiful light...

    Excellent P.O.V. here - love the elfin look!
    It does look very dark on my monitor though and looks like it could use some more contrast.

    "Hey... what's your name ... grandson ... come here I have something for you to wear"

    "Cool Grandma ...what is it?"

    "It's a tutu"

    "It's a what what?"

    "A tutu. A dancing skirt for girls"

    "Are you crazy crazy?"

    "I'm going to take a photo and you ARE going to wear this!"

    "Grandad!!! HEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEELPPPPPPPPP !!!!!"

    "Grandad's not here! You can run ... but you can't hide"

    "Please Grandma ... I'll eat all my peas tonight I promise!"

    "Too little too late pipsqueak! Get over here and drop em!"

    "Sniff ... sniff .... No ones ever going to see this photo right Grandma"

    "Ummm ... errrr ... of course not"

    "If they do I'm telling them why your sofa is all squishy!!"

    Oh for all that is humane ... will someone get out to the midwest USA and save this kid

    Look what I found on her blog!


    By the time his parents get him back he'll be knitting his own sweaters, growing his own flowers, and picking out his own training bra!
    It's going take 7 whole seasons of both Home Improvements AND Two and Half Men to get this kid back to knowing what he is!

    I should comment on the photo too I suppose .... regretfully ... I like it.
    If ignore the tutu (deep breath), I really like the lighting and composition. It may be a frag too far left for me but the light/shadow thing works beautifully.
    I think it's a great shot overall.

    Shame there wasn't much more shadow about hip height ... the boy might have been able to keep his dignity!
