What a great image! I love the look of concentration. The high key effect works very well here! #183621

Fantastic image, Audrea!!! I just love this. I used to always keep chalk handy for young kids when they came to visit. They have so much fun with it. #879101

Taken while experimenting with the spot meter function on my camera. Elijah was in the shade of the garage overhang and I in the dark garage in the evening. I metered on his dark clothing and got this dreamy hi-key image with the rest of the driveway blown out. I brightened the bottom 2 corners to "round out" the image. 19mm, f/2.2, 1/40 sec, iso 100, cloudy light source setting, spot meter.
