This photo was taken late friday night, My 5 years old boy Daniel had accept to be model but when everything was ready he was stuck watching Simpson:)... So my 7 years old daugther Telma came to me with a big smile and want to play part of this photoshot. It was big thing for me to have toe from child in this photo, It was not easy to take this shot.... watching Telma under white blanket with label on the toe, but this was something I had to do. My wife could not watch the photoshot but she understand :) . Telma is amazing model, we had a good time for about one hour or until she fell into sleep under the blanket with 500w softlight lit on her feet hehe. This photo was taken when she was sleeping. The metal table are little plate from my Weber grill. Raw, shadow/highlight, B/W, crop, curves, border, USM

Cold reality it is. Overall very well done, just wish the tag wasn't interacting with the frame.

The lighting here is awesome. :) The highlights and shadows are wonderfully balanced and I can almost feel the cold of the metal table. Well done!
