Very nice portrait of Bella (as usual). Interesting and effective processing on the first shot of your BIL.
Sorry to hear about Cailiegh's granddad. Seems like there's fewer of us every day.

I totally understand. My approach to photography is simple. I improvise everywhere I shoot. I'm just not into the studio shooting thing. And it captures the feeling at the time. Formal shots are great for weddings, graduations and the like, but for those kinds of pictures, I leave it up to guys like you.

What's funny is to shoot a wedding as "not the main photographer", and have your pictures (at least some) turn out better than the pro.

Thanks Brian. She's my favorite model.

I have PSE 11 and Topaz Detail3, Clarity, and Adjust, and among all that firepower, I somehow was able to grind out that look on Mike's picture. I'll be danged if I can remember how I did it. Would that make it a one-of-a-kind?

Well, the Big war vets are almost all gone now, the Korean War vets are dwindling, and I guess we're next. You and I had two of the deadliest MOS's there, and we beat the odds. Here's to forty more, my friend...
