GX1 with 12-42 kit lens... I'm very pleased, what do you all think?
i love the processing for the theme
Nice capture of a very special moment.
I would crop it a little tighter and print it off for the mother.
I agree with the tighter crop suggestion (cut off trees above her head), and I love the moment, it is very, very sweet.
I was quite impressed with the little kit lens, I was going to get the 12-45, but I may keep this one until something happens to it.
Probably invest on 45mm 1.8.
I did a tight crop on it, but I made it a bit different.
Very nice - the crop is better to me, but I preferred the B&W of the first.
Agree with RevBob, the crop works well but the B&W was more pleasing (to me).
Yes, RevBob nailed it. But it's a great shot any way you look at it!
Nice capture. And I prefer the uncropped version with the other children in the photo. It emphasizes the love and attention the one child is receiving from his mother. I also prefer the B&W because it better defocuses the distraction of the child in the far backround and thereby focuses better on the mother and her child. The natural circular shape of mother hugging child and child hugging mother is better emphasized in the B&W, uncropped version also. Nice job.
Thanks all, I do have a few other poses from the burst I got from that little moment, but that one was the most pleasing of them all. Had the most, feeling out of it, even thought it was a bit busy.
Always welcome the critiques
Nice shot - and I agree with RevBob, I like the tighter crop but with the original B&W processing. The crop pulls the focus to the central subject and combined with the B&W makes it feel softer and more intimate.
I made a copy of the crop with the settings of the B&W... Just waiting on prints now
