Sad Eyes

Melissa G. Meiselman 1/13/2007 7:25:22 AM

I took a look and this black and white presentation really gives this image an entirely different feel. Without color the focal point is certainly on his eyes, which have a pensive look. Terrific job, Denise!! #587230

Cyn Valentine 1/13/2007 7:50:55 AM

James R. Jackson 1/16/2007 1:32:05 PM

Denise, another fabulous shot! I loved your "photo-therapy" comment. Very likely the boys would prefer not to be so much in-camera, but every one of your wonderful photos is going to be a treasure to them when they are grown and perhaps have children of their own (and bring them over to Grandma's house for a few pix)! Great work/beautiful children (what a combo)!

Keep shooting! #3827266

My son was not enjoying this photo session. Can you tell? I think they're going to need photo-therapy when they grow up!
