This was taken at a wedding, where I was the photog. These are two of the bride's children and I'm not sure what they were discussing, but they were very involved with the moment. It's one of my favorite photos taken to date (and one of my client's as well). It may not have the mass appeal necessary for DPC voters, but I'm still very proud of it.

PP included: crop, gaussian blur, levels, desaturate, contrast, LucisArt, dodge/burn, resize, sharpen, save for Web.

Highly underrated shot. I love the expressions and the depth of the conversation it appears they are having. The DOF totally brings your focus to the children, and the soft focus adds a nice touch. I do like the B&W but think even in color it would be even better, IMO. Great capture.

An absolutely prescious moment that has been harmed by the procession here. It does not work. This is a really, really nice candid shot that simply needed to be a little more focused and some minor adjustments to add some contrast. The capture is a solid 6-7. The processing is a 2. Sorry. Good Luck. 4.
