[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I wanted to add more contrast, but it did not look right. I know you said no "grays", but black and white. This is the best I could do for now. Maybe, with another theme, with no children on it, would be easier. I will try latter. Hopping to get more experience in B&W.

What a lovely closeup capture from this cute child, Lorena!

Great details in his eyes and wonderful light with superb sharpness and from a perfect POV.
The like the curious expressions of this kid while getting pictured by you.
Nice entry to Friday's theme!

Have a nice weekend.

Kind regards,

Hi Maria, I sometimes think twice about how far to push the contrast or saturation, it doesnt always look as bad as you first think.I hope I didnt discourage you, it was more a case of pushing past just grey tones to black and white as well. Hope you dont mind a quick ws, just upped contras a little and adjusted the gamma. I find that the gamma sometimes does the job without blowing out the whites.Fiona.

Hi Maria

Really like this entry. Great DOF, really focussing on his face and especially his big, beautiful eyes which really draw you. Good details and sharpness in the rest of his face and clothing.

Well done!

Kind regards,
