    Hey guys. It's been a while since I've posted anything here. I've been super busy.

    Here's a shot I took of my friends daughter Sandra. Comments and crits welcomed.

    Good shot! I find the blanket by her left foot a little distracting but that's just nit-picking.

    Hey Matt,

    great to see your work, and I think this is the first time i've do a people shot. This is really wonderful! What PS process did you do to get that warm sepia tone?

    Thanks everyone :)

    I just did a channel mixer to convert to B&W, curves adjustment for contrast, and hue/sat for the sepia, with settings of 25 hue, and 20 sat.

    USM of course as well.

    This is a great photo. I love the shadows. Kids are great when you can get them to stop posing.

    it's a great photo. i enjoy watching it.

    it expresses the child happiness.

    it's a natural, non directed photo. this is the kind of good pictures.
