About the Image(s)

We went apple picking with my grandson. I got portraits of everyone that turned out quite well, but I'd say this one was the best, taken as we are leaving, as the sun was behind the hill so it was getting a little darker and he was very tired, but determined that he would get a pumpkin.
I cropped a little, erased green pole in background, and reduced a white spot on a pumpkin in the background.

Canon 5D Mark II, EF 16-35mm f/4L
shot ingo: 35mm, 1/500 sec, f6.3, ISO 500, spot metering.

Good capture and effective treatment in post. Nothing really to suggest for improvement. Perhaps would be even better if Cooper was looking at the camera. What do you think?   Posted: 10/12/2021 10:58:43

I really like the light bouncing off the pumpkins - give them real dimension. I love how he has grabbed his pumpkin!   Posted: 10/12/2021 12:58:30

Almost an exact duplicate of one I took of my now 28 year old granddaughter that I cherish and smile every time that I look at it. Very well done.   Posted: 10/17/2021 13:25:52
