Bunny
Lens: Tamron 70-200 Camera: K10D Photo Location: Holdingford, MN

This is my daughter holding a bunny, and my son standing behind her with his hand on her shoulder. This is not cropped... shot it this way. My wife thinks I'm really strange for not including their heads.

I commented to my daughter that I didn't understand what the white lines on her hand were from, and she told me that they're bunny scratches.

A cute picture with exquisite B&W rendering.
Not much of the subject to look at but I do like the conversion.
Well done.

Thanks for the memory.

We had one of those cute little critters once. It left bunny pellets every time it hopped across the floor.

I like the conversion also and I think your idea is alright not to include the faces, however I think your son's hand is a distraction. It would have been perfect wihtout it.

BTW, my daughter used to have a rabbit also years ago. Cool little critter that barked like a dog and had fun playing tag.

Yeah, that's why my wife doesn't like this photograph. I guess I was going for more of a mood/feeling than a pic of my kids. I wanted it to evoke an emotional response... childhood, soft, fun, friends, etc.

Oren: "I like the conversion also and I think your idea is alright not to include the faces, however I think your son's hand is a distraction. It would have been perfect without it."

Interesting. I had never thought of my son's hand as a distraction, but you could be right. I always thought it added an element of friendship and familiarity. Of course I know my kids, so when I look at this pic I see things like my son's fingernails being chewed right down to the nubs, which is how his always are. And I see him casually resting his arm around her shoulders, an indication of how good of friends they are.

I also see in my daughter the delightful mix of girl and tom-boy. She loves to play outside and get dirty and pick up animals, but she does it in a dress while wearing a necklace.
