Hello Denny.

Ihad a look at these on saturday.

Iappreciate the use of colour on the teddy and BW on the girl.

There is indeed a 'distance' ... a proper distance when considering the love an adult may have for a teddy bear.

I fee there needs now to be a bridge .....

My first thoought ahd been to let the woman's eyes be in colour.
The other thought was to esaturate and darken the teddy a bit .. so it is obviously on colour against woman and background of black and white ... but not so glaring that the rest of the picture is obscure in comparison. Th eteddy os so much in the spotlight that the relationship is slightly lost.

An alternative handleing is the following ....
And nb, this is simply an addition to what is coming across as a perfestly well organised vision you ahve kindly shared with us.

Let the woman and maybe even the background be in colour ...
and the TEDDY be in black and white ....

Think of that and NOW .. turn the teddy to SEPIA ....

Sepia is a chronological sterotype .... stylistically it is about turn of the 20th century and nostalgia ....

Have alook at it that way, Denny and see how you feel.

Second photo .... the couple looking into the distance .... darken the left ear of the guy. It slightly interrupst the directoin of the energy.

Maybe a little dodging ... softly and lightly around and in the ey sockets ... leading to a bit of whitening of the whites of the eyes ....

There may be other ways of doing this.

I am devoting my attention to what needs to happen in the picture to add pressure to the direction of the gazes, and to the gazes themselves.
In your homework, those are the two crucial points of reference.

Brest wishes
