Christopher W. Holmes September 30, 2004

Wonderful picture. I'm curious, what was the light source to the right of the camera? #814918

Audrea Telkamp October 01, 2004

Thank you so much for your comments!! Christopher, the light source to the right is the sun later in the day (I think around 5:00pm). I replaced the parking lot that was behind him with some of the grassy area from another shot. #816199

HOW CUTE, Audrea!!! Love the intensity on his face trying to get every bit of watermelon!!! Great job!!! #819421

Louison Rousseau October 13, 2004

You did a great job with the close-up, the light (which wasn't that easy to expose for, I think) and the replacement of the background. This is a sweet and lovely shot!

If I may add a simple suggestion, I would try and blur the grass before adding it to the photo (not after, as you might get a funny halo on your son). It appears a bit too sharp considering that even a small aperture would probably not get something as close as your son's face and something else in the bg both in such good focus. This would also help the bg not overpower the shot. #839179

Thank you so much Louison!! That will give me the depth I am missing. Something bothered me about the background - you put your finger right on it! #839356
