I loved this photograph of my two grandchildren (V2 is the original) but I wanted to draw attention to just their beautiful faces without any distractions. So I thought I would try a high key image. Hope you like it.

Many thanks for your comments on my last upload and special thanks to Irishkate for her precious UA, it was so much appreciated.

I hope you are all keeping well.

Carol

Now, I have no idea how you obtained the effect in V 1 but I do like it so much: a very effective method of presentation which achieves your goal beautifully.

The high key image is stunning.
I know you've done these before but I thought they were achieved with lighting.
So you've left us all wondering how you got from V2 to V1!
