Sharing one of my small one

Yesterday, the kids and I were visiting family. Jackson going to the point where he was so cranky, that I knew I needed to give him a nap. So I went out alone with him, gave him a paci, and sat down on MIL's porch swing. I just happened to have my camera with me, so, of course, I thought to myself of how sweet it would be to get a picture of him sleeping on the swing.

The first try at laying him down didn't work. I got him back asleep, and laid him down again with success! Now I guess I know what newborn photographers feel like?? Wink The lighting wasn't exactly ideal because the sun moved from the time I thought about it to the time I actually was able to lay him down (and got some un-recoverable blown spots), but I'm still very happy with the results.

Feel free to CC if you'd like, but no need to Smile

How adorable! And I love the angel statuette in the corner!

This is one I would love to see in b&w - that swing has such a timeless look to it. Wink

TFS,

You are more than welcome to give it a shot! I'm so horrible at conversions!

Stephanie, I LOVE that! It is so sweet and beautiful! I also think a B&W would be awesome on this one!

OK. Here's a quick go at a b&w conversion.

I usually like more blacks in my conversions, but in this case, I liked the washed out look.

I'm also thinking this might be a good candidate for a texture, but I don't have time to play right now. Wink

Best,
GiGi

Stephanie ... I typically use the gradient map for my b&w conversions. Then I play with brightness and contrast. On this one I also added a soft light layer at 10% opacity.

HTH.
