Excellent set Graham !!! I'll give two thumbs up out of three, only because I personally preferred monochrome. However, it would have been a different story if the color were in monochrome. Don't get me wrong, the color is appealing as well.

Thank you Graham !!! Now you have three thumbs up !!! I feel so special now, LOL. I didn't mention anything about the images, but I find them all very appealing in a different sort of way. The somewhat innocent, subtle smile from the first one shows she is a happy girl, while she appears to be inviting the approval to be photographed. Expression goes a long way with images and it shows here. The second one, she seems unsure, but yet willing and finally the last one says here I am, a happy fellow and it shows so well in this image. Very nice captures Graham !!!

You did notice that the boy has an extra thumb? Hence my reference to three thumbs up :)

A truly wonderful set. The expressions, the minimal but effective context, the detail - all make these so masterful. Great conversions on the monochromes, too (as usual).

No actually I didn't notice, but do see it now. My apologies, I was too focused on his wonderful happy face.

Wonderful images Graham. Like both the color and BW's.
