Good one, i like the way eye contact has been made it lends to the overall impact of the shot, would just have preferred the subjects towards the RHS of the frame to avoid the negative space ...Smile

Cheers

Potentially a very engaging shot but I agree that a different crop would have worked better, and it is a shame that you didn't get the whole of his foot. Still well worth a vote though.

I just wanted to keep the green plant in my shot, which symbolises the tender age of my subject. Thus the frame should be regarded alongwith this symbolic presence. Ofcourse I agree that the whole of the foot could not be kept in the frame. It is not shame but it is a mistate due to overlook.

A lovely portrait, & the kids look a very happy little pair.

I quite like the plant, especially with your explanation as to what you wanted to acheive.

The foot was a shame though, but I do that myself. You get so focused on what you want, that you forget to look around the frame, just to check everything is right.

I love this one. You can see that there is a bound between them....with or without some toes Smile the thing that they look in the direction they do make a balance for sitting with the back towards the wide empty space behind them....other wise I would have had more space in front of them. But as I say the eyes direction make it fair though. VERY NICE!!
