Here's another shot of Harmony and her new friend, taken about 20 minutes before my previous entry. As with that shot, you'll see that the original is quite dark. In this instance though, as I decided to fade out the background detail during post-production, I would have got away with a much brighter initial exposure.

This is a very cute moment indeed. I myself would be inclined to produce something very warm and summery. This is interesting.

Adorable. Interesting experiment. Will you be selling prints with this look or is this mainly for conversational purposes here? Do you sell prints of some of the other looks too?

LOVE the light, rosy tone here!! An authentic moment captured indeed! Very genuine... Wish Harmony's eyes were opened...Again, great tonal treatment - reinforces Harmony's pink shirt and gives the overall image a lighthearted and comforting mood.

Thanks everyone.

David: I sell prints of most of my images, but this one isn't for sale as it's not just a shot of my own children. I probably will use this tone again though.
