Images to me portray two things.
First, rmr was at the controls during processing. This is her style, nothing new, if you have been here (lurking or posting) you know this is her style. Some like it some don't. Some like HDR, some don't. Some like selective color, some don't. Some like Dave Hill style, some do not. It's her personal style like it or not.
Secondly, the images portray a certain darkness and sadness. IMO they are supposed too. The op clearly stated these children will soon be living in a divided home. Our society has become numb to divorce. Over the course of time a healing process will occur. Somewhere throughout this process, these photos will serve as time gone by, healing, what once was.
Prayers to you and your family through this difficult time.
Thank you, on all accounts.
I would respond to more of the posts (and I do thank you all for commenting) but at the momment I am a bit flustered by the fact that someone took it upon themselves to perform a little virtual plastic surgery on my child.
