    This is my nephew, Jack, taken today at the Easter family gathering. Jack is disabled. He's 10 and manages okay with loving parents.

    Interesting.. this loses a lot of sharpness in posting it here. The print is better. Oh well.

    This pictures conveys a very strong point I like it a lot, thanks for sharing
     
  3. Bless his little heart............nice capture Tom.
     
  4. This is a moving image. People with disabilities often find themselves inside looking out at the world. You have captured that so well here.

    thanks Mike, Dawg and GF

    That's a good point. Jack doesn't speak. He has communicated using special techniques (a board where he points to letters to form words) and we learned there's a lot going on in there, which he can't communicate. He is maintreamed in a regular classroom and obviously knows how to spell.

    Thanks for the comments. I like this one, too.

    Not a lot to add, but it really is a beautifully done portrait Tom. Thanks so much for letting us see it.

    thanks

    I appreciate your comments, Virginia, Neal and all.

  10. In my opinion this wonderful image would suffer from too much sharpness. This little bit of unsharpness renders it a bit remote yet not less touching.
     
  11. That's a precious picture, Tom. What was Jack looking at?

    That's because pBase squished it. Here's why, and how to avoid that happening again...

    ... and here's Jack's picture in unsquished format.

    original.
