hi,
i have pictures just like this from when my 2 lads were growing up, and as they grow speedily into adults, these sort of images take on more importance and meaning than any others.

the faces are the wrong direction i know and it would bother some, but hey its never going to win an exhibition, but it will remind you of great times that you had together.

i might have taken a slightly lower viewpoint as its a good idea to take at least from the same height as the subject and would have taken the heads further above the horizon. also using wider view in landscape / horizontal format would have given more context of the scene they are trotting into.

Welcome to EPZ Josie.


I notice from your portfolio, small though it is as yet, that you really have a good eye for a shot.


This is a delightful shot, - very personal, and I completely echo Phils comments.


I have loaded a mod where Ive cropped the height a little, mostly the top to give the impression they are higher and you are lower, and blurred the distant trees. Ive also sharpened it a little.

One thing to know when uploading shots to the web, is that once you re size the image and save it, DONT upload until you open the new image, and check for sharpness. The sharpen as needed, save, and then upload.


Hope you like it,



Regards


Willie

I like this a lot. I have numerous basically similar shots of my two lads. The sepia works well. I would have prefered the lad on the right in a similar pose to the other rather than in mid step and I would have run the dodging tool over the dark areas to lighten them just a little.
