Timeless Candid Shot

By photophantom  
Sephia and grain effect.

Candid shot of school children Preparatory Class last Friday.

I decided to make it Sephia with "noise" effect to justified the title: Timeless "Candid"

Enjoy the natural expressions of those angels. Their faces are all over the place.

All words are welcome and appreciated.

Good day my Mentors and Artists!

Sepia tones can always render an image timeless, but I am afraid the shoes in this might give away the time frame. I wish we had these wonderful shoes when I was child!
I wonder what has caught the eye of the majority of the kids? I think I see Jethro second from the left.
Nice candid of children's many expressions.
Thank you for the kind comments on my violet kaleidescope.

Thanks for your words of wisdom Anne. Yes, that is Jethro. Unfortunately, I need to cut off those shoes coz the other hand with camera will distract the composition. That is the main reason of this very tight cropped compo.
Majority of the kids saw a huge commercial airplane passing by.

Lovely! I read the comments above and with regards to the shoes you could even try a tighter crop so the shoes would disappear altogeter.

Once again use Adobe Photoshop to reduce the contrast and see the difference.... Conceptwise - simply excellent
