Very nice shot Frank. Even with good PP it is not easy to make a good image with the face in the shadow and bright sun from behind. This one is nicely done, with the shadow adding drama rather than detracting. The composition is simple and elegant. I know you didn't pose him, but it couldn't have been better if you had. Good catch, good work.

Thank you Mr. Chinn, glad you are enjoying them...more patience than concentration on my part though.

Thank you for the compliment minniev...shadows really aren't as hard to deal with as most think with modern day processing capabilities...I see now I could have worked his chin and forehead a touch more..thanks for bringing that to my attention..what I get for not looking off an on for a day or two before posting...

It's such a pleasure to see a lovely picture as this is, taken down low on the child's level not from the usual standing position, and free of any distractions
