The son coot obviously cant keep up, or maybe he just knows that his place is behind his dad ;)

I wish they were a bit better exposed so you could clearly see the adults face but alas I couldn`t manage, oh and sorry to Mitch, I promise one day to get all my photos on one post

I like the mood in #1 showing father and son off on an adventure together.

Well done Mark....the first two are very nice. You can just sense the bond between parent & new born.

In the fourth shot, it isn't that the son cannot keep up. He wants to go into NASCAR and he is practicing drafting. Cute shots.

Nice series. Love the first one. Looks like the front of a Hallmark Fathers Day card! :)

Very nice series Mark. If you want a detailed explanation on how to do it, PM me. :wink:

Thanx Mitch I guess I might just take you up on that offer, allthough I am out most of today so it will have to be tomorow, again thanx for your patiance.

I like the mood in #1 showing father and son off on an adventure together.

Thats the kind of feeling I get with #1 as well, i like these guys, I know that the chick isn`t the most pretty of chicks but they are very colourful. Thanx.

Well done Mark....the first two are very nice. You can just sense the bond between parent & new born.

Thanx as I said to cooper911 I was hoping I might get something of that kind of feeling, they do look to be a good father and son team, ie the father does everything and the son scrounges off him :lol: .

In the fourth shot, it isn't that the son cannot keep up. He wants to go into NASCAR and he is practicing drafting. Cute shots.

Lol, never thought of it like that :D , maybe your right but it would have to be a water version of NASCAR, looks like he did pretty well as well ;) .

Nice series. Love the first one. Looks like the front of a Hallmark Fathers Day card! :smile:

Hmmmm, fathers day cards a new business maybe...........thanx for the very kind remark, it is very much a father and son (allright maybe daughter) series.


Thanx for commenting

Mark
