Can't help taking bath time pics of this kid! He's just so dang cute!

IMAGE: https://farm2.staticflickr.com/1469/24406702665_2afb56fda9_b.jpg

Missed the exposure thanks to auto ISO. Raised 1.14 stops in LR so it's really ISO 225. Additional local exposure increases done around the eyes.
In hindsight, I wish I would have gone with roughly f/2.2-2.8 to get both eyes sharp. I thought he was perpendicular to the camera when I fired the shutter but... NOPE! He must have moved.

Yes he is darling. Keep shooting. I would lighten him up a little bit, especially those eyes.


Life is hard...but I just take it one photograph at a time.

Hi Maureen! Thanks for providing an alternative PP of the image! For my taste and intention, it's too bright and the eyes too intense. I often shoot and PP to "remember" the moment. In this case, the ambient light wasn't overly bright and so as a result, my memory of the moment was a little darker (in terms of abundance of light).

Having said that, it is ABSOLUTELY possible that my monitor is too dark (I've never calibrated it beyond using the on-monitor calibration tools) and I've noticed that prints are often (always?) darker than they are on my screen and need to be lightened a fair amount. So, that could explain things significantly.

Thanks again for providing your work on it!
Jonathan

It's a wonderful picture! I think a happy medium could be found.

The original is very nice but I felt it could have been lightened also but only slightly. Maureen did a good job but the intensity takes away from the calmness or serenity of the original a little to much. This of course is personal preference.

A great image and blessing!

God Bless,
Ralph

Yes, it could be monitor difference because I actually went in & toned down the eyes & then lightened the whole thing a little. It looks the same on my iPad as it does on my PC & I do calibrate every 6 months.

Anyways, your baby is darling so keep that camera humming. :lol:
