Normally, I have a good idea as to how my wife will react to my shots of our kids, but I got it wrong this time.
I've worked on this one a few times since Christmas Day, mostly to remove some ugly shadows from around Harmony's mouth. Anyway, having finally managed to get it to a state I'm happy with, I showed it to my wife. I expected she'd like it, but her only comment was ... "but it's out of focus". Hmmm. I know. Anyway, I like it: it was shot with an intentionally shallow DoF, and I like the rather "dreamy" feel. That said, if your first reaction is – "but it's out of focus" – then I guess it probably doesn't work as well as I imagine. Over to you.
