A precious momnent aptly captured in your CU human interest portrait. Monochrome rendering here once againis spot on.
Well composed and photographically spot on.

Nice and romantic capture, Roger.

Lovely scene Roger!
Just great picture and good choice as B/W.
Rodeo makes great opportunity to do great shots like this one.
Have a great Sunday!

What a touching moment you have captured here, Roger!
Great management of exposure and well caught natural light in this outdoor casual portrait.
The expressions of both of your models are just wonderful.
A well executed work!

Kind regards,

Hi Roger,
A great double portrait in B&W. I like the humorous aspect of this presentation. Nice contrasts while maintaing a great amount of grey scales.
Very neat work.

Hi Roger
Son kissing mom...great capture...the B&W is marvelous..
Naturel tones...I am always amazed at your photos in Black & White
Good Sunday

Hi Roger,

Lovely image,perfect timing,the black and white works a treat,I am sure the mum would love a big print of this moment in time.

Hello Roger, a lovely study of the young woman and the boy,presumably her son? His expression with his lips ready to deliver a kiss is perfect.
The lighting is wonderful, even a little shadow from his hat!
Sharpness just where it needs to be, thanks for sharing.
Regards Jean.

Hi Roger, beautiful moment and great choice of the b&w. I love the slightly oversized hat that she has to squeeze under. Fiona
