This is a shot of our son when he was between one and two years old. The lady is my wife's grandmother. She is 100 years old! Camera was Casio Exilim z850.

A great picture of family social history. Just very nice in composition, expressions, lighting and clarity. I like it a lot.

Keep it, preserve it for future generations.

1 and 100; very good idea, indeed. I really likedthe pose...Andwish the lady an even longer life! Suchsenior citizensmake a unique opportunity for us in terms of oral history.

As forsome concerns, Ifound someelements a bit distracting from the subject. The child's apron, for example,with high contrast parts, which I clonned and burned. The background, also,with plants could be selected and applied some lens blur as I tried. The overall image looked a bit blue biased, whichI attempted to heal using the colour balance tool.I also changed the lighting to emphasize the subject more. Hope you don't mind!

I very much like the edit. So does my wife. In fact, she wants to gift the picture to some family members.

Looking forward to to your edit of the original.

Thanks

Robin
