Closing the book... Local historian Jim Standish signing copies of his life's work, watched by his grandchildren.
Thanks for looking,
Another priceless shot and great mono conversion, Moira.
Superb detailed shot Moira great mono .
2 Superbly detailed images and your conversion to mono. is spot on Moira...Phil
No hint of noise with an ISO of 800. A particularly well composed black 'n white candid.
A well timed capture of two generations here Moria.
Attentive moment Moira, expertly taken.
A pity about the chap on the right who is competing for attention but a very good conversion to mono.
The little boy peering over his grandfathers shoulder is enchanting the photo is beautifully taken and so well timed
I love the boy's expression in this, so lovely a contrast to those of others in the frame!

I've mulled over this for a while. I composed it deliberately to include the book title easily visible bottom right (the Local History Society had asked me to take the pictures for their publicity), so I didn't want to crop Brian off. He was taking the cash, so quite important on the day! I decided that I quite like the balance. So Brian stays...
Thanks everyone, got to go out now.
I think I preferred the square crop, without the other man. The two children and the old man form the perfect group.
Another excellent capture of the signing
Yesterdays version was the 'crop' without Brian, so I can see why you would want to include him on this version, but the niggle for me is that his forehead and nose are resting on the frame.
Lovely documentary/candid shot Moira. To me his expression conveys a sense of relief that it's finally finished
I like this more than yesterdays.......... but I see what Dave means.................. "Brian" Looks like my brother
Well Moira,I won't get out as much as I used too,so perhaps I should settle down and write my lifes work and get it published. No kids could read it however as it will need to be over 21's only !! They do say EVERYONE is capable of writing a book.I do not believe this.I am still waiting on JK Rowling to write one !!
I think I prefer the previous one where the girl was looking at her grandfather with interest here she seems not to! It's interesting reading the other comments how we all see things so differently, which is great!
Look at the concentration of the little boy...
A most beautiful moment caught. Old age and children in perfect harmony. IB
Expressive faces, a superb mono image Moira
Another super mono conversion of this event, Moira
Another fine image of this lovely old gentleman Moira.
Another wonderful moment captured just as you saw it. "I like this a lot?"
It's black and white as we like it, well it's how I like it anyway, good mono capture well precessed love the expressions I ok with comp but I can see where Dave is coming from.
Thanks again everyone.
I have taken comments on board and prepared a cropped version, which will get its own upload next week.
A moment of introspection caught here Moira.
Coming late to comment. If you crop that gentle man on the right, you loose a wonderful lead with those books in the corner. You could use the darken edges soft maybe - anyway, sounds like you've already come up with a solution, so looking forward to seeing it.

And they, in practical terms, were the object of the exercise.
Cheers everyone, I'm heading for bed.
His grandson looks rightly proud!!
Yesterday relatives, today whole county, Moira!
Two lovely taken images Moira, looks great in mono, Peter..
Another wonderful moment captured of this event

Mick's memoirs would definitely be well worth a read, no doubt there'd be plenty of references to rust, the dockers club and Big Aggie in there!
like the kid's attitude!
