IheartFaces - Week 11 - No Flash

Watching and Yearning...

This week has not been an easy pick. I was tied to outdoor photos as I only have a p&s atm which does NOT take pictures indoors without a flash. So outdoors meant very recent (old camera was not as good as even this one), or snow!! I entered a snow pic last week, so didn't want to do that again. I also wanted one with nice shiny eyes :)

This lovely photo was taken of my baby just this Saturday as he watched his siblings playing in a waterfall in the Lake District. I could see he was longing to join them - and he will soon enough of course.

I haven't done very much to this  photo - is was pretty good sooc, but I wanted to add 'effect' to it, so i simply auto-fixed, cropped a very little, sharpened his eyes a touch and applied a faded hoglaish (picnik), just to bring back the blues a bit. Vingnette, and frame with black and blue - and that was it.

What do you think?

What I like...eyes, crop, definitely the hat, wisps of hair...what I don't like..."NO FAIR" photos... :( I have those too! We have "NO FAIR" at the Fair photos, where my older one gets to ride the big rides and my toddler has to wait...and wait... The longing is very obvious here. Great capture!
