[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is the first time that i am posting shots using the same subjects in both TE and TL on the same day. In this shot, I have them up close and personal. I also did a lot of PP here. I desaturated the background using layers and brush, the same method I use for blurring.

This picture is capitalizing on the smiles of my subject. It is enough to brighten my day then (and now). I hope this makes you smile too.

Not only they are smiling right now Manny. So am i :) What a joyfull photo this is. The litel girl is just adorable.

Hi Manny , That's what we need . More smiles in every day life. Very special shot . I like the background desatureted,it keeps the kids in distinction. Fernanda.

such genuine smiles right from their heart. I have always like to take people shots but I am too frighten to get close. For such shots, did you ask permission, did you give them any presents or they are so willing to pose for you?

it sure gives a nice effect manny:-) this portrait is indeed excellent and the pp you did enhances its beauty! rainbow in nan too i can tell...;-) lol i like the colors and the blurred wooden panel in the back... excellent post manny; i missed it yesterday.

Beautiful portrait, I love their expressions and the joy they bring through this picture. Great colours, composition and sharpness (as always).
The desaturated background is effective and bring out the lovely kids more.
A beautiful portrait!

Again great portrait Manuel, the smile expressions of the children is wonderful. Well done!

I think the post process works very well, the saturation is excellent and the right amount. I love the little ones ckeeky smile, what a face! This is one of my favourites! Tell us what is your secret to your sucessful portraits.

Awwww, What a sweet portrait! I keep finding my self going "aaawwww"! I like what you did with the background to subdue it, (pause for another AAAWWWW) and the colors in the foreground are simply beautiful. I wouldn't expect anything less from you!

great expression!
