[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
First photo on TL, I am looking for something to post that doesn't fit on TE, and it's the only one I have at work. It was once posted on TE but here I practiced my framing and transformation to sepia. Officially, this is Anthonin, my grandson.

Nice to see you Nina :) I recognize this shot from T.E. I remeber liking it then and i like it now. Sepia works very well. He has such an lovley expression. The blur you have added have made the potrait very soft and it has also given hime a bit of a shimmer. Very sutible for your grandson.

So you are a grandma, too, Nina, now we discover all the secrets..
Nice to see you here, Nina, and a wonderful first shot. He's so cute, amnd I like his expression very much. You dd a nice job with the sepia and the framing. Well done.

Those eyes and eyelashes, what a gorgeous boy. Like the 3/4 face view, and the sepia toning.

Ah la fierté de Grand Maman :-) I remember the color version of Anthonin on TE.The eyes tell it all....he is awakening to the wonders of life.

A nice little shot from the family album. Good sepia work. Something seems to have caught his attention.

Hello Nina, you did a good job on the framing and transformation to sepia. Very nicely done.

Oh, I really like his expression Nina. I wonder what scarred him or is he surprised of something. I too find that the sepia colours works very well on portraits and especially on children - adds a nice warm atmosphere to the picture. Great job you did here capturing him in just the right moment.

Very beautiful conversion work. I remember myself of this photo. Anthonin has a funny mime and a beautiful expression. Bravo in big manan

Très beau travail de transformation. Je me rappelle de cette photo. Anthonin a une mimique amusante et une belle expression. Bravo à la grand manan

Joli début sur ce nouveau site, l'expression naturelle de ce bambin est très touchante; parfaite présentation.
Merci Nina.

Wonderull Nina. He expresion it´s great.

Well done.

Think I saw this one before - but here a very good post work Nina..

I already admired that little one before and I enjoy that well captured moment, I like the blurry frame, but I think I prefer the TE one better...
On which theme will we collect the "grand-children"? :o) - Have you a title already in mind?

Lovely work in postprocessing, Nina. I recognized Anthonin. The sepia tones, and the blur all around, makes the pic very artistic.
What a wonderful expression you captured, congratulations.

I noticed that you posted this before just a little differently like you said. is that still ok to the TL standards? I think this a great shot none the less. I put this shot in my children theme.

tres belle composition, Nina.
sepia was just lovely and it enhances the beauty of the baby.
his expression is delicious.
congratulations for the picture and above all for the baby.

This is just one of the best portraits of a child I have ever seen! Your use of the blurred effect adds special attention to that glorious face. Just wonderful.

Très belle photo, Nina. On dirait une photo ancienne. Très réussie!

Hi Nina,
What a lovely expression on his little face.
