I was really wanting to go for a Hallmark type feel. I love the little kid shots, and have always bought my wife the love cards with B/W children. I think they display sure purity, and innocense. Their names are LeiLa and Coen, both are 2 years old. My Mother runs a Childcare and I asked to use them both. Took about 30 shots, because I could only give them so much candy for sitting still. Thought this was one of the best. It actually was a candid shot, as I told Leila to say thank you, so she leaned in to give him a kiss. Couldn't get any luckier. Hope everyone likes.

In PS:
USM, Used Channel Mixer to convert to B/W.

The selective desat works very well here. Nothing like a *young* couple with some roses to bring the sentimental feelings to the forefront. You've captured a beautiful innocent moment. Well done.

Just a touch of color in their cheeks would have done it for me (along with the roses).

Beautiful. Love the concept, fits very well with the challenge, does not seem to be gratuitous desaturation, and the children are just perfect.
