photoblog image An expression of Love

An expression of Love

I can hear the comments ringing out on this one about the processing.........................well then lets hear it, what do you think about todays image? I wasn't sure whether a pure black &white or a slight sepia would work, what do you think?

Thanx to everybody that commented about the bee image, the reception was better than I expected. I wasn't gonna put up anything but I was persuaded by Dammie Berrymore, so this ones for U madam.

The shot says, "Alien mother and child - Futuristic love on another planet". Ok, rubbish catchphrase, but you get the general gist smile

I like it!
sk: thanx very Nkechi

The PP is way too overcooked for me bro. Distracts me from appreciating the beauty of the shot itself. It like makes me want to rub my eyes and check that it's not me.
sk: U see this is the issue, there are photographers (like urself) and there are artists, I consider myself an artist. I really like this shot and so does the mother. Its an expression with an artistic touch that evokes emotion of a great moment, not a technically sound, "just the right smoothness", piece of work. We operate different types of photography, but I always appreciate ur comments and listen to ut feedback, thanx dude
the subject is brilliant. the pure love between a mother and a child. however, i do not like the pp. denosha and i are on the same page tonight. the pp really does distract from the wonderful capture that you have.
sk: thanx Nicole

Sorry its in capitals. OVERPROCESSEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEED. Would have been off the hook otherwise. guess you knew that already
sk: Oga this is artistic rendition and not a "pure" photographer, I am not a photographer (well maybe sometimes), I am more and artist. The digital age of photography sometimes spoils what photography used to be. It promotes that images should always be pin sharp, well focused with perfectly placed subjects. Dude please look at the old beautiful photography, check this link; http://theonlinephotographer.blogspot.com/2006/06/great-photographers-on-internet.html

i don't feel exactly qualified to comment on the evident skill behind the shot, but for me as a personal taste thing i don't like it. i'm afraid the baby frankly looks like an alien in this shot.

Hi Asiko - you're right, the mum loves the picture! I have been thinking a long time about getting some proper pictures taken of Toddy and the family, and this is exactly the sort of thing I had in mind!

I love the focus and the glow - and anymore comments about alien baby will not be taken lightly!!! :0)

Well done - Master Photographer! A+ in our books!

sk: Hello Catherine sorry about the alien boy, sometimes ppl have all these silly "opinions" LOL. I am really glad u like the shot, whenever Ur ready we can do some creative stuff with Todd, his too cute.
