Very nice, Robert.
I'm a fan of the "Pleasantville Effect" and you did a nice job with it and nice DoF to set it off.
A very nice set of kids shots
The look on that face is just priceless, Chris. Great capture there.
My nephew was shot with an EF70-200mm f/2.8L IS USM. Shot at 200 mm.
Thanks Terry, I love doing selective color work. That shot of your nephew is amazing. The EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS USM is a great lens. my Christmas present to myself this year is going to be a 1D mark IV and an EF 200mm f/2L.
This past year I've "made due" with my 50D & 70-200mm f/2.8L for a lot of sports & motorsports work. The 1D mark IV will make that much easier/better with it's dual digic 4 processors and 45 AF points alone. The 200mm f/2L is more of a creative indulgence lens. It will be ok for the sports stuff but the 70-200mm f/2.8L is much more versatile. I might consider a 300mm f/2.8L to compliment the 70-200 instead.
Great shot Steve. I like the grayscale. What color was his shirt? I'm thinking that this shot would make a pretty good selective coloring image if the colors are right.
Ah, the “Innocence of Youth”.
Makes my Heart soar. And you guys do such a compelling job of it capturing it. Makes me glad I never really grew up and I hope I am never expected to!
Steve, I don’t know how you handled the eyes on the young man of “Impasse”, or if you did anything at all, but that shot snaps for certain.
Had to chuckle, Steve! Not only was it a “Kid’s Candid”, but added the “the other element of cute”, the cuddly fur ball!
Bagged two of the most difficult subjects ever!

Beware of Things That Go Bump In The Night!
What cute kids on the thread.
Chris, just love the expression of the kid, in your shot.
Rob Douglas, the DoF * selective colours in your shot look great!
Rob, the t-shirt was pale yellow and grey. I do use selective colouring every so often but never thought about applying it to a people pic. Although, it does work extraordinarily well in your pool photograph above....mmmmGreat shot Steve. I like the grayscale. What color was his shirt? I'm thinking that this shot would make a pretty good selective coloring image if the colors are right.
I would be very surprised if I had n't applied a slight USM. I usually do with the eyes.Steve, I don’t know how you handled the eyes on the young man of “Impasse”, or if you did anything at all, but that shot snaps for certain.
Not really Sox is a very old cat he goes nowhere fast these days and always sits with my son when he's on his lap top.Bagged two of the most difficult subjects ever!
Same here. WireVixen is run off her feetGuys! I’m up to my hind end in Trick or Treaters here
Very powerful shot Steve! The subtle selective coloring looks great.
