This is Devan, a friend's grandson. He came down to the marina to visit his "papa" (and grandma). He has a wonderful disposition. Although I do not take many portraits, I thought the white deck made a great backdrop.

Have a nice day !

Hello Julie and Devan

I agree, the white in the deck really makes the wee one stand out. I was wondering what you used until I read the note. Great view from above. I do not have the patience for this kind of work. It looks like Devan enjoyed your presence. Nice capture

Hello Julie

A sweet portrait of this small boy with a nice high key toned bg to add graphism. Superb sharpness & tonal range with a soft diffused light and nice highlights in his eyes. The reflection of his hand in the shiny metal square at left add interest. Tfs!

So cute! The white deck of your boat made a good background for portait. I like the natural pose. Good dof with sharp details. Very well done, tfs.

One to be proud of Julie .. this is a really great portrait of this little cutie. THe white BG is perfect. I'm sure his family would love a copy of this.

Hi Julie,
Beautiful portrait of Devan a grandson friend,
good contrast and light in B & W presentation,
He is so cute and maybe 10 months year old..I think he is lovely with his two teets,
Nicely done.
Très jolie photo..

Olá Julie
How to resist to this delicious face and posture. Good sharpness and good B/w choice..maybe just a little more space in the foot...
He is a winner...good portrait
um abraço

What a lovely and cute child he is, Julie!

Amazing backdrop and perfect contrast with superbly shown natural skin tones.
The way this child is behaving is so awesome.
Great shot!

Best regards,

Hi Julie, the bg really makes Devan stand out, just gotta love those two fangs.Looks like he had an interest in that metal plate.Fiona

Hello Julie :)

The child is sweet, especially these his two teeth, and the superb portrait.
Very well, that you chose the white background, because it underlined the child whole figure perfectly.
Splendid introduction and her realization...congratulations!

With best wishes.
