I like the image. It tells a nice story and is nicely done!

I really like this one, especially because the emphasis is on the lines and wear of Grandma's hand, not the child. A hand full of character contrasted with a hand full of promise.

I agree a nice touch-

Good use of the lens, but perhaps a bit too high key in the finish.

Excellent composition of a touching subject. I must agree with Mtclimber...I'd prefer a more toned down finish (i.e. highlights/brightness).

Thanks for all the kind comments-was lucky to get this shot-they were walking about 10-0 in front of me-the old Ist DS focused just fast enough to get the shot. As for the high key I will attempt to adjust when I get home-difficult to do on this laptop with a touch screen.
