Photograph Information Photographer's Comments
Challenge: Family (Advanced Editing IV)
Camera: Canon EOS-300D Rebel
Lens: Tamron SP AF 28-75mm f/2.8 XR Di for Canon
Location: home
Date: Jul 8, 2005
Aperture: f/4.0
ISO: 100
Shutter: 1/60
Galleries: Family, Black and White
Date Uploaded: Jul 10, 2005

i know the focus is soft but getting an 8 yr old and 5 year old granddaughter to hold a "giggle" is beyond my ability; although had I to do it over again I would use a faster shutter and compensate aperature and ISO; alas they got on the plane for home before a reshoot! Anyway I got them in a moment that illustrate the love sisters have for one another no matter the age.

This is a cute pose and a very nice candid. On a technical note, the DOF is too shallow and brings unnecessary attention to the younger girl's hair.

Fit Challenge Criteria: 2/2
Color/Contrast: 2/2
Photo Quality: 1/2
Composition: 2/2
My Subjective Affinity: 2/2

This is a great shot. It really brings out "familiy". The overall quality is good, but the focus is softer on the younger sibling. It might look better if they were both equal.

The lighting in this is a bit harsh, and the image is flat. Depending on your editing program, you might try increasing the Contrast or playing with the Levels to give the image more pop

Wonderful family shot. Only problemn I see is girl on right slightly out of fucus. A bit more dof would have helped.

Great candid b&w of these two sisters...it is so spontaneous and wonderful..great expression and lighting with a natural feeling, nothing about this appears staged..well done!

I love how genuine the affection seems between the girls. This is beautiful.

Really sweet! Couple of hotspots, but certainly do not detract from this lovely scene. (PS, a slight crop of the right side would remove the most distracting hotspot and balance the composition, but I will not vote less for that).

the photo gives a sense of closeness amongst these two - hope they always share that!

awww. this is beautiful and happy, and endearing. maybe a little closer cropping of the upper & right would have improved it, but there isn't much about it that needs to be better. good job!

This photo is great, I wanted to do one similar with my brother but we go to different schools and live in different cities so it didnít' work out.

I like this photo because it looks sincere and real. I also really like the black and white treatment. I hope you frame this one and keep it around the house. My score

Cute. Nice crop and use of contrast. Good coloration in black and white - not too stark.
