A nice photo of Christmas time. I like the angle of undisturbed concentration, although the image may have been improved with better framing and a tweak in light temperature post processing towards capitalising on the cosy warmth the subject portrays. Nice capture (my children were to excited to keep still for long exposures and I hate using onboard flash, so I only managed a few blurred shots)
This picture came close to getting my vote, and I like the general composition in framing the shot. However, while the exposure setting may suit portraiture work and the beautiful angelic face portrayed here, I feel the overall effect in brightness losses some depth in detail (and implies an over exposed image that can easily be adjusted in selective post processing). This said, it is good to see such joy and the natural playfulness being captured, and the shot reminds me of images often used in the decoration of children's shops.
To my choice this week; I was torn between Carols around the Piano and Boxing Day Cricket, and eventually went for the latter upon the action and novelty factor.
Nice shots all round - Happy New Year to all.
