I have to go with this of Kara's choices -- though it wasn't easy. Your pictures of your beautiful daughter and her son are just wonderful. Thanks again for the processing tips which I have used to (I think) good effect and congratulations on your gallery feature at 101. #9758655

Shot this in natural light from the window, raw format, converted to monochrome using gradient map with a chocolate brown selected. Made oval selection over mother and child, feathered at 250 on reverse selection, filter>blur>gaussian blur>backspace to remove from focal area and there you have it ;-) Just in case anyone wanted to know!
