    1st – Family Smiles
    Well done, Kathy. I’ve enjoyed your portraits that you post on Facebook from time to time. You certainly have a knack for this genre and have kept improving over the time I’ve been watching.

    2nd – Mommy Snuggles
    Jeannie, you seem to have the most photogenic cat I know, but I can’t give him all the credit. Your technique for capturing his personality is excellent.

    3rd – Smiley Face
    Nicely done Lisa. This makes me think you were in the middle of quite the giggle fest.ReplyCancel

    Due to recovery from the recent site hack, a few comments were lost in the reset effort.
    But good news! I still have them!

    Here is Jeannie’s comment/vote on this post:

    1. Family Smiles – nicely done Kathy! I like the pose and I like the depth of field but I might have cropped it a little closer to lose a little more of the blurred foreground.

    2. Smiley Face – This is a lovely candid photo Lisa! The focus on the eyes is fantastic. It would be interesting to see a more narrow depth of field to minimize the sharpness of his hand even more. Who is this little cutie? 🙂

    3. Mother and Daughter – I like your composition on this shot Kathy. I found the shadow on the daughter’s face takes away from the photo though.ReplyCancel

    Here is Lisa B’s comment/vote on this post:

    OK, I’m way late to be voting, but just in case my votes will count, here are my top three:
    1….Family Smiles
    2….Mother and Daughter
    3….Mommy Snuggles

    Jeannie, thanks for your feedback. That cutie-pie is Jered, our friends’ Jim and Rob’s little boy. We were hanging out on the deck at their place in Napa, and Jered lit up when he saw my camera. What a poser (and very happy child).ReplyCancel
