Three great pictures in one

1. The operation game board itself (great desat on the nose)
2. The wonderful portrait of your son, (brilliant angle and great concentration)
3. The two combined - Sublime

I thought maybe this would have finished a little higher. I thought the selective desat was perfect for this! Beautiful photo.

This is such an intelligent and artistic photo. I love the play on opposites, dark/light, hidden/exposed, eyes closed/opened and there are probably more that I'm missing. Compositionally, this is also great. The child placed so high up on the frame suggest superiority, perhaps even god like superiority. The choice in having a child play that role couldn't be any better, IMO.

Ok, maybe I'm reading too much but your artistry in crafting this photo led me there. Well done. This gets my YankO Blue (along with another photo). Good Luck!

Nice POV and the selective desat really works. A seven for you.

Well composed with great contrast and desaturation. Well done!

Ah! Another one of these. Love the use of selective desat to emphasize the point of the game. Nice use of DOF, too.

It's funny how the selective desaturation seems to accentuate the macabre aspect of this game. I like how you composed and processed this!
