I definitely prefer the sepia.

I realize it's one of those shots that you only have a moment to capture, but I wish they were looking at each other. He's describing something and it seems that she is looking away. (As well, his fingers look a bit unnatural - a bit square - maybe some motion artifact...to picky there.)

I do like the overallidea and shot.

Like the moment but prefer the color. To me sepia is limited on what shots it works with, more so than black and white.

Hi klfatcj, Thanks - I hadn't noticed the hand until you mentioned it. On close inspection it looks reallyweird! I kind of liked the way they aren't looking at each other - makes you wonder what they are discussing (especially for me as it's my son!!!)

Thanks Widowmaker - think the sepiaeffect was a Hallmark Valentine Card type impulse! But I still prefer it to the colour.

Steve

The first thing I noticed is the hand, very wierd looking. But overall I like this shot and agree with Dustin try black and white. I like the color better than the sepia. Also maybe crop a little off the top.
