Very sweet image ;)

joemulligan from United States

What a gorgeous image. Richly saturated colors, blues and orange and pale green setting off the double portrait. The child so perfectly detailed and the father, as fathers should be, a little blurry in the background, but still there with all his attention on the child even at a difficult angle, while the child is focused on his o wn world but, I think, drawing strength from his dad. Beautiful shot, Dulcie. (And yes, I have the full Photoshop, but from what I've heard you can do almost everything in Elements.) I'm jealous of your day-long shoot.
