    Yes your picture are very nice
    Always well captured..
  6. Very interesting stuff Jan.
  7. I love this series. Yes, I guess walls mean something different for children. We're taller - we can see over them easily. For children, they block the view and therefore their curiosity increases. Makes sense now.

    That last one is superb - the colours, the eye contact, the little foot. Wonderful, Jan.
  8. Jan, I always look forward to seeing your interesting photos.

    Impressive as always, especially the color. Care to make a little tutorial in how you approach color correction and editing in general?

    Photographing persons with really dark skin against a light background makes it really tough to get facial characteristics and nuances of color whilst not blowing out the valuable colors and contrasts. These are great! Love this series!!!

  12. Thanks for the replies everbody:smile:

    Mike, I find it very difficult to make a tutorial because every photo is so different.
    The only thing I do is to open the original file, press ctrl+L to open the levels window and then search for the levels I like.

    In other words, you actuially know what you're doing up front and don't depend on a lot of PP. That's great. You shot RAW?
  14. Jan, how much I look forward to your images you have posted of late. This series is wonderful and the kids seem happy with their simple pleasures.
