About the Image(s)

This was taken at the local car show back in February. The car is actually the child's stroller so I cropped and cloned out his parents and the handle of the stroller. I made some basic adjustments in LR.

Camera: Nikon D500
Lens: Tameron 18-400 @ 220mm (330mm equivalent)
Exposure: f/11 @ 1/500
ISO: 250

Good concept. Exposure focus and composition are all good. Color and light are effective. Your cropping and cloning worked. I had no idea. I think that having the child's face directed more towards the camera would have been more interesting for the viewer. To take this one more step, why not add a blurred speeding car flying past in the background!   Posted: 06/05/2020 18:26:08

Would like to have seen the original of this since there were marked changes made and you did a lot of work on this. The youngster's pose, leaning forward, and his grip on the wheel gives the impression of concentration on his "driving" It is a pity that his face is turned away, his expression would have been most interesting, but it is a lovely idea..   Posted: 06/05/2020 18:47:38

Richard, your post processing is right on target! He looks like a cute little kid and the car is wonderful. But, like Mark and Barbara, I think it would be significantly improved if he didn't have his face turned. As an alternative, you could make it a composite image and insert something for him to be looking at. Here's the kind of think I have in mind.

Richard, This image has a nice clean background, and is very sharp; all the work you did on the image shows. The pose on the child is precious. I might have added a border.   Posted: 06/13/2020 16:45:43
