This is my son taking over my "space". I was doing some macro shots and he just couldn't stand not being the center of attention. He kept climbing up on the ottoman I was using. I finally just gave in and threw him his teddy and went with it! LOL!

Blended a few layers and adjusted levels to achieve a sepia tone, then returned saturation very slightly to the teddy. No crop on this one. :)

I just love the wonderful tones. Your son is like my youngest. She always wants the attention, especially in front of the camera!

A lovely iconic image of childhood. The soft sepia tones really emphasizes the nostalgic feel of the photo. Great job :-)

Oh my goodness Angie, we certainly were on the same wavelength this weekend!! I actually took one that was very much like this but mirrored and with a girl, lol. Even did the sepia tones. But I like yours much, much better!! So darn sweet!!
