A friend of mine has said: "The boy is crawling to get near, to listening to love music speech..."
The boy´s first steps.. the couple in love.. small conquests...Taken in a city of Atibaia park, on winter sunny morning.

I like it. The boy seems to be going for the adults in the background. Lots of crawling ahead. Good shot.

This little guy has a long way to go and looks like he is on his way. A really cute photo... I like it...

This is a beautifull shot as well Carmen. Thre is a good emphasis on the child and your point of view makes on think of "taking steps in to the un known" as a child do every day...

Chosing B&W was defenatly a wise choise. In the colour version the colour themselfes conflicts with the motive. they become a distraction rather then emphasising it.

Good work Carmen

Really nice. There's a story that's captured here. Nicely composed. I think b/w is the right choice, the DOF is good too! One small criticism (due to the time of day probably) the hat and shirt on the boy are a bit overexposed, but this is a small thing.

Very moving photo and note. I bet he could out-crawl me any old day. :) I like the choice of B&W and the framing works well here.

Carmem, conferi a versão original em seu workshop. Gostei mais da versão P&B.

(O garoto sabia que estava sendo fotografado?)

Parabéns mais uma vez.


Excelente, o enquadramento e o fundo desfocado ficaram ótimos! muito natural! e o b&w ficou ótimo!
