Six-year-old Benny appears to have come straight from a 1950's advertisement.

After shooting this image, a little massaging of curves and contrast produced a surprising vintage feel.

Sorry, but my brain didn't process the title with the picture. A little too late, but I think you should have scored better.

Thanks for the compliments, pamb, Jutilda, and paulbtlw. And thanks for the input, dianapf1.

Vintage 1950's/Norman Rockwell is what I was going for with this processing, which is really outside my normal "thing" so it was a fun educational stretch into a new area.

Thanks, paulbtlw, for taking the extra time to look for the out-of-the-ordinary/unconventional. I try to do the same thing when I vote/critique as my eye likes to find the things that haven't been seen before or not seen in the same way. I'm glad this photo worked for you!

I'm going through the entries, stopping at those images I feel have had the benefit of an unconventional eye and dwelling a little longer to try to see and appreciate what you saw. This is one of those images.

Positives: I like unusual portraits and this one nails it; the quirky expression, the 70s coloration, the liberal noise. All good.

Critical stuff: No

Overall: Exceptionally well made.

cute kid, but over processed.

Definite throw back! Cute and well processed for the style I think you were going after.
