Thanks for the clicks and comments so far. Meant to mention that I used a Lightroom preset - Creative Cold Tone for the desaturated look.

Great lighting and a lovely portrait. I know what you mean about the mixed emotions when they pass their test. I have a whole new set of things to worry about now our 17 year old is driving too! J

It sure is, Stuart. But then again, you can't wrap them in cotton wool. You just hope the foundations you've given them are robust enough.
Thanks everyone for the comments and clicks. Another RC - blush!
