How much did you get for those

I met this little boy last weekend and he was extremely fiesty. He could speak english but would only respond to me in Swedish so I was lost in translation. He put his chicken down long enough for me to take this picture. I'm still working on the processing to find one that I'm happy with.

Priceless, Etomi. Judging by what teeth he's lost, I'd say he's around the age of my grandson (7). grin
E Etomi: I think you are right Ginnie.

WOW !! He really bonded with you .
E Etomi: He really did!
Thumbs up.... this shot has so much character Easily one if not the best pic that ive seen from you.

Now this is what i'm talking bout!.... Not some candy photo of a lovely looking woman ( We like them too by the way!)

Not some holiday snap shot ( Skee's also reminded that peeps take pics for fun as well)

Not some over the top photo shopped piece ( Opps!... I've done a couple of these myself smile )

Children make the best photographs, simple because, (until of course pick up all the bad attitudes from us adults) they have nothing to hide and as such express themselves fully and without a worry. Here you have capture a timeless piece. ( DONT OVER COOK THIS IMAGE THOUGH!)

It's monday, I know, but I still couldn't resist laying down some of my "Heaviness" on you all smile I love this quote and I hope you will ponder on it through out this week:

The ingredients that go into the creation of outstanding images are subject emphasis, the eradication of time, and universal themes. That is, a readily identified subject in a timeless setting that is universally recognized by people everywhere. Such an image is not only the hallmark of a truly remarkable photograph; it is achieved by very few photographers. -Robert Devere


Tomorrow maybe....I think YES! smile
E Etomi: Wow Mr Skee, thats a lot of 'comment'. Glad you like the shot! Thanks for the quote, its inspirational.

E Etomi: He wasn't shy about those teeth at all.

This is a powerful portrait! It made me smile. Some noise reduction might be a good idea.
E Etomi: Thanks Martin, I might have added a tad bit too much of the noise filter
