[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
captured this moment while ammaar was playing with the lamp light, he seemed amazed with the effect of turning the light on and off :)

shot at ISO 800, using 85mm 1.4 lens :) this time, i fixed the film for 15 minutes :)

little cropping :) and minor levels adjustments :)

i am surprised that the grain at ISO 800 is minimal with this film :)

thanks for viewing :) let's see what you think :)

It looks to me almost as he is enjoying the warmth radiating from the light. I might have preferred eyes open just a touch, but there is a lovely tonal quality in the image. Nice moment!

WoW what a nice take.

The moment is priceless n unlike 1st critique, CLOSED-EYE really works at its best or in other words his closed-lips smile n closed eyes made this one superb.

Loving the tones and grains thats beautiful. I only grip the NARROW DOF, if it was taken at f/4 (probably) it would have given great DOF to keep the other eye in focus to present the true SHEER JOY


Salam Mohsin Bhai,
Here is prince Ammar who so cutely posed which is I think due to light hitting his eye which ultimately created lovely and cute expression.
My Best Regards
