Baby Joaquin and mommy Adriana again. Love this shot, not sure others will think it's up to par but looking through my portfolio for the last year was pretty devoid of fantastic shots, so this will just have to be good enough. I really hope voters like it though, his look is so intense 0.0

hues, b/w conversion, smart sharpen, contrast, dodge, burn, cloned out a few little blemishes, cloned her hair a little since her hand was partially showing, neatimage, more dodging, contrast...not sure what order I did these things in but that's what I remember since last February.

Beautifu shot and a very endearing one. The type of shot that really connects on an emotional level. Love the choice of B&W.

this is sweet! The baby is spot on, but the mom's face looks slightly oof. this may be intentional and is strictly a preference issue, it is just a bit distracting. But, great image and one that will be in the family album forever!
