As you say, Gwyn, Black and White.
Very good Portrait, lovely Carla. well taken.

Great portrait Gwyn, well seen and balanced like the dof field on this, feel had the statue been to out of focus would of distracted even more. not had chance to catch up on rest of your portfolio off for few days hope you had good hols. Big Click

I thought there were two people from the thumbnail, it's a lovely picture of her but I agree the statue would be better a bit blurred so you can concentrate on the girl. Black and white is a good choice, well worth a click

Love the expression on her face, nice tones, you can't beat b&w for portraits I think. Don't mind the statue and agree it did look like 2 people in the thumb. click

Super shot Gwyn, great toning, there's something in the background in the space of his left shoulder and the statue which needs blurring a bit, I thought for a moment it was his left arm but it can't be.

Personally I like the statue, it's what has the little girl's attention (or what you told her has her attention). I thought it was her arm at first glance but not so sure now...
Depth of field is ok for me and love the piercing gaze Smile

Beautiful portrait Gwyn. Love the serious look on the little girls face, the catch lights in the eyes and the out of focus statue adds to the impact.

Excellent, love the way you are drawn to the boy and the statue!! CLICK

Gwyn, my family live in Cairns, though I have two sisters in Brisbane as well. Cairns is where Mike and I will end up - hopefully 5-6 years. Warm, sunny, diving, family - cant wait. Sydney is also a great place, but as you say two weeks is just not enough time to see Australia. And the jet lag is rubbish!!

All the best Gwyn
