    For most of the general public who do not even take snapshots in black and white, their first impression of a black and white family photo is that it is old and must have been taken a long time ago. The reason is that they have generally seen black and white shots only in old family albums. The assumption made is also that if he/she was a certain age when the black and white was taken, they must be very old by now.

    All my childhood photos are in colour by the way.

    Thanks tegan - I knew the distractions were in there, I just left them to see if you would notice. lol.

    tomorrowstreasures - I like this shot very much, it's very playful.
    Perhaps it could use a slight boost in contrast but that's it. It might also work REALLY well in sepia.

    Thx

    SEPIA!??? If someone turned 90 this year, we would expect to see a childhood photo of him or her in sepia!!! That would be almost cruel.

    100% no - 1000% disagree. Sepia rocks!!
    The photo already has a timeless feel and the sepia will make it even more timeless. Many many clients of mine LOVE sepia.

    i think nowadays, with all the technology out there, people realize that b&w or sepia photographs aren't actually from the stone age of cameras.
    i personally love the b&w's, how classic and simple it can make a pic feel. and sepia sure can help make a shot warm & pleasant.

    This is the image that the resizing was from. I hope it shows up decent and that it is not too big!

    The distinct advantage to the colour version is that the colour of the umbrella strongly centres the attention of the viewer toward the child. The path also is stronger in colour directing the attention toward the child as well.

    The technical problem is that the focus should be more on the child than the umbrella which is one of the weaknesses of some autofocus systems.

    Bottom line however is that I have seen far more effective colour photos in the past half century than black and white. Too many new photographers think that black and white excuses more errors than colour. Not so. Black and white demands considerably more postprocessing or darkroom work to get right and this is seldom done by the majority of black and white enthusiasts.

    I seem to remember a promise of a HDR moon\landscape photo from you which was never fullfilled, even though I presented my technique very quickly and suggested that your technique would not work. Perhaps you discovered that I was correct.

    Now, it would be nice to see one of those "timeless sepia" shots from you that your clients love, along with the colour version for comparison sake and a close look for all of us in the Critique forum...but then I always expect promises to be fulfilled, as I am sure you know.
