Nice tight crop with excellent clarity on the baker and child.
B/W combo works well here to fit the mood.
PP work loos great and it fits the theme well.

Amazing shot you've captured here and an outstanding choice for niks silver efex plug in.
Very well composed and great walk through on your PP process.
P.S. This black friday work schedule is going by very fast, but things are actually starting to slow down now.

Interesting decisive moment of this musical production. I like the choice for black & white in order to convey light.
The balance between dark and bright areas looks well handled, with sufficient detail throughout the entire photo. Personally though, I'm less convinced by the shadows casted by the nose and the lips on the left part of the actor's face. These shadows (even if impossible to avoid with this particular pose) do not really look aesthetic to me and somehow "disturb" the face. Maybe you could have softened them PP-wise. I also would have wiped out the tip of the bonnet (?) still visible at the left of the actor's cheek. It pops out against the dark backdrop and still reinforces the less aesthetic shadows I mentioned above.
Just my personal opinion, of course. Feel free to (dis)agree ;o).
TFS & kind regards,

A nice B&W shot to show the beauty of light which creates contrast and details in every aspect of photography. I like this simple posture of this actor showing this doll in the light available.
A perfect moment in this presentation.
Well done for this spontaneous shot!

This is a really good entry to today's theme. The expression of the baker is well caught and he appears to be really seeing the light that shines on him and the doll. The B&W gives the image a special mood. Thank you for the interesting note,

Another nice shot for, your “Into The Woods,” production... Sharp contrast and good B/W image... You could have used fill ligt or reflector to soften the shadow on actor face... Other wise the image is good, and I like it, TFS

An interesting pose of this girl carrying the doll captured with high key.

I can see what Eric means with the shadows on the man's face but think it's only a minor point. To me, the small portion of the man's ear looks like a boil on his cheek at first glance, so I would clone it out. A little oe in the dolls attire, but a well composed shot overall. Tfs!
