Challenge: Comfort (Basic Editing III)
Camera: Canon EOS-350D Rebel XT
Lens: Canon EF 55-200mm f/4.5-5.6 II USM
Location: Iceland
Date: Feb 25, 2006
Aperture: 5.6
ISO: 200
Shutter: 125
Galleries: Black and White
Date Uploaded: Feb 26, 2006

I used light meter (first time ever) to get correct exposure and I was placed about 2m below and about 10m away. I didnít processed it very much. What I did was I processed it from RAW to TIF and then I used G-Channel in PS to make it Bl/Wh. Then I added USM filter to it to sharpen it a little bit, cropped a bit and enlarged the canavas with black for fill-in color. I used the eraser tool to make the white border.

Hope I will get some points :=)

nice photo and good in b&w, but I think the black border is way too thick, takes from the photo, I would just have it as thick as the white one

Like the positioning within the frame, and the expressions on all three make this "comfort" photo very believable. Nice composition. Like the borders. 6

Lovely photo, B&W works well, the frame sets it off nicely, good presentation.

Lovely B&W and beautiful family. I think it may have been better if it looked like Mom was comforting them after getting a boo-boo, or wiping a tear? Just a suggestion.

Good use of b&w to set off the subjects from the background. Good tones. Why the big black border?
