Wow...thanks for the votes and the ribbon. This was a beautiful session I had with the sweetest 3 year old. Mom and dad now have this printed in a large canvas on their wall. I remember when my kids were this small.....the title said it all for me. These moments of childhood are fleeting.....they grow up way to fast.

You have a true gift for being able to bring out the tenderness and vulnerability of your subjects, man and beast.

Gorgeous processing. This feels truly timeless to me. A moment that recurs generation after generation, and is all too easy to overlook.

A lovely portrait. 8.

This image has caused me to stop and pay attention. That means it is in my 7-10 voting band. (Voted earlier)

Additionally, it is highly interesting/eclectic meaning it keeps me here long enough to offer a longer comment and a vote of 8 or more.

This is one of my 10s - I like it very much. Furthermore I think it enriches the DPC collective portfolio. Put simply, I wish we saw more stuff like this. Let me tell you why it pushes all the right buttons for me:

1. The superb fall off of focus.
2. The endearing subject.
3. The Noctilux-like swirly bokeh.
4. the lovely tones.
5. The well chosen vignette.


Just lovely.

Outstanding portrait; I could look at this a long time. The child is beautiful and the processing makes this even more charming.

A gorgeous shot overall, I love it. When I went to do my second look through I couldn't help but to wonder about the colored version. I'll bet you were torn between the two, maybe not. I couldn't say the other would of been better, not having seen the other, and because I like this one so much. Great job.
