Roscoff in brittany. took at the onion festival.

My son is fascinated by tractor, and when he saw ther was an exposition of old tractor, he wanted to tonch them. But no way to put him on "I'm scared" he said.

choos this pov to improve the big size effect of the tractor next to the young boy. pass in B&w because colors was no good (orange clothes for my son, dark blue for the tractor, and rose for the background wall...) Maybe I chould have took a greater aperture size to reduce dof again.

- b&w with channel mixer
- copy layer
- soft light fusion

I hesitated beetween this one and the one i added in worshop, with simulated noise...
hope you like

Hello Olivier
Your son is cute...well framed.
You create that effect of "big" as you write in your note.
Good choice for a B&W.

Excellent !
I've just remembered how fascinated by huge construction trucks was my son when he was 2-3 years old.

have a wonderful weekend,

Good morning Oliver

What a superb capture and really well suited to B.W as it gives the image a wonderful nostalgic feel and keeps it crisp and sharp. Lovely POV and a really cute expression.

TFS and for joining in the fun today
regards Helen

Hello Olivier,
A nice memorable shot of your son. I would bet there is alot of dreams going through his mind about someday driving the tractor and doing great works with it. Well seen and taken photo, composed well, good detail captured and an excellant B&W image. Nice work!


Depuis toujours, les gamins sont fascinés par les tracteurs ! je me souviens encore des kilomètres parcourus sur ceux de mes voisins quand j'étais gosse ! Bine vu, le noir et blanc ici !

Salut Olivier.

J'aime bien l'expression de ton fils. Il semble vraiment impressionné! La seule chose qui me dérange un peu, c'est la ligne verticale créée par les pneus qui séparent la photo en 2 plein centre. Sinon, c'est du tout bon.

Bonsoir Olivier :)

C'est une très bonne idée pour le thème. C'est vraiment charmant comme photo. Ton fils est adorable. Hé oui.. tout les petits garçons adorent les gros tracteurs. Bravo !

Bon choix pour le B/W.


Bonjour Olivier
Belle exposition bien nette, les détails sont précis et le contraste entre la taille de l'enfant et celle du tracteur est très réussi.L'enfant semble impressionné, tu as bien su capter son expression. Noir et blanc, bonne idée.

Hi dear friend,
what a lovely compo. The B&W choice for the tones it's a very good one. Great crop and framing. I love the expression on his face.
All the best for you and your family.
