[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Taken at a, special, children's farm.
Special because it's also a project for people
who don't fit in our " payed for stress " community ...
They feel themself at home between the animals
It brings them peace and pride in what they do.
I ain't a keen human photographer : feeling a bit like
a voyeur, but after serveral visits I wasn't that strange man with his cam anymore.
A very nice, warm, feeling !

Tech :

In RAW-convertor
Adjusted exposure, recovery and fill
Adjusted contrast, crop and made it ok for TL

Hope you like it :-)

Hi Jan,
This photo is very nice and very well focused and it pass a very nice feeling... I must confess that I would love to make the bg disappear but I do understant that isn't always possible :)
But it's a great shot.

Axhhh.. das een hele lieve..
Mooi altijd in zwart wit..
hij lijkt wat korrelig, of niet?
maar de tederheid springt eraf..
ik hou wel van foto's die een mooi verhaal vertellen

Voor mij is die pico bello in orde, Jan. Mooi onderwerp, goed in beeld gebracht met een mooie belichting en zo.
Zou je 'm vierkant snijden vanaf de rechterkant, dan valt er links een wat storend stuk achtergrond weg denk ik... plus dat het paardenkopje dan aan belang wint in de foto... What do you think?
In alle geval: TFS

Jan , i like the B&W here very much and the sharpness is top too , the strongest features of this photograph but there is a 'but' , i am sounding so much like you ,hi hi ,well i believe the BG could be totally out of focus , the young man and the animal deservedly should be isolated from the cluttered and distractive BG (a choice of F 3.5 for ex ) the moment , the essence of this very instant ought to be sealed in a time bottle so to speak with nothing to disrupt the 'intimacy' present in this interesting scene at the farm. You captured the mood quite well my friend , i like this ,
Hey take care , let me know what you think ,
