One for CC pls.

Here is a picture of my nephew and son. They are inseparable, best buds. What are your thoughts on this picture? Anything goes!

f2.8, ISO 200, SS 1/125

I like this one, very cute! although behind them it seems like extra blur was added? or is that all in-camera? I like the processing, but would also like to see it with a touch more "pop" too maybe.

I personally end up focusing on the bottom left corner. I think the kids need to POP more as well. Its a cool photo though.

I don't feel like they need to pop, necessarily... I like the processing here. I just feel like they're a bit too centered. I'd like to see something cut off the bottom and (possibly?) the left.

Thanks for the input everyone!

Amy - that is in camera blur.

I actually have another crop for this and processed it warm B/W

El, I like the second edit better. I liked the first, but the boys are a little lost in the image. I feel like they need to fill the frame a little more, just because of the pose and the subject matter. A bit of background around them would still be nice for the setting (which does look good in the shot), just not so much that they are lost in it.

I like how you cropped in on them on the second edit. I agree that they were a tiny bit lost without anything to frame them.

OOoh I like the vertical crop! The first one with the way it was blurred and their surroundings they just seemed like miniature children almost. It didn't look quite real. Even though I love the surroundings.

El- I saw this on IG and LOVED it! I do think the first one needs the pop of the 2nd one. Such CUTE boys!
