One step behind....
Just trying to find the sublime cropping. I used to be such a purist- HA!
I wonder what black and white would look like? This one is another photo I took about the same time. I think it looks better as a whole black and white- especially Naomi's face compared to the other children's. It also has a color enhancement, it sort of makes the sun look REALLY bright. I sort of like it, but I like what I did later better.
This photo was originally taken with my 3-year-old, 6.0 mega pixel cyber-shot camera. I decided that it would look better in black and white. Then, I saw that I really liked the two sisters' faces, and there was room to frame them right. Then I wanted better contrast. When I was in high school doing dark room black and white photography, one goal I had was to have a true white and a true black in each photo. So that's why I amped up the contrast, and I like it.
I also like the light right around Brynn's chin. I didn't plan for that, it just came out.
