OK, instead of going to my old files I decided to start afresh with Selvin's challenge. The prop is a very old telescope we found at a garage sale. This is my youngest son. Canon 40D, 24-70 2.8L, natural lighting from window.

walter,

Classic work! Looks like it was all done with natural lighting. The sharpness and detail in their faces is a winner.

My only Grinch comment is the background wall to their right. When you print I would perosnally clone it away and make a neutral background.

Aloha
