Cropped, used the clone tool to edit the backround..(wishing I had a wider backdrop).

Used the burn tool in some areas and contrast, converted to b/w. Last, resized and sharpened.

Ha, my wife thought this looked like our triptych (you can see it in my portfolio). I love the guys fighting in the background. Bumping to 7. Last second bump to 8. This pic rocks...
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/08/2006 06:22:03 PM
Very nice composition! Great choice of subject matter! Nice image quality. Very creative! - (originally gave you a 7 but the more I thought about it, I love this shot too much...bumped it up to an 8)

LOL! I think this is what a lot of mothers think of when they think of "Mother"!! Nice high-key shot.

Cutely staged. I have felt that way many times!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/08/2006 12:35:41 AM
The idea is there, but it looks too staged - while the high key approach helps to eliminate distractions from the background, it's a liability in this shot since you lose a frame of reference upon which these models are posing (and therefore looks too staged).

Having said that, it's a good, solid entry nonetheless since I think you captured the essence of the theme.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/07/2006 12:36:45 PM
Ah yes, this capture one torrid moments. Bumping up on great presentation.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/06/2006 06:50:05 PM
How true! How true! Great capture for this challenge. The expression on the moms face is right on. Nice lighting, love the black and white with kids just a little blurry in the background. Good Luck!

01/06/2006 02:31:02 PM
HAHAHAHA!!! Love the humor in this one! 9

True...true...looks like my house.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/05/2006 11:47:21 PM
hmmm. Subjects look right at home in the DPC challenge pics. I like the balance of the black shirts worn by both parents. and DOF
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/05/2006 08:44:12 PM
Unfortunately I find no realism here- kids don't yell, they always get along with their siblings, and they certainly don't keep crying to momma. I don't know what you're getting at nor what message you're trying to send but I'll go along with it anyway. :D

Great focus, great use of dof, great tonal range, great crop, great layout. Hmmmm - that's only 5 greats. Ooops, there's another. I'll stop now ... very nicely done - excellent photo and excellent depiction of poor mom.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/05/2006 06:55:24 PM
This one says it all. Great DOF and the b/w works well here
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/04/2006 09:02:58 PM
Awesome set up, the background is hillarious. It would have been cool if the mom had her eyes open looking at the camera. 9
