[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Henry and Max are two years apart in age but still great friends. Sometimes when my daughter goes to check on them they are asleep in the same bed holding hands. I am sure they will love each other their entire lives.

Hi Roger,
Excellent capture as the shaft of light singles out the two friends surrounded by shadows. A very cherished moment in this special friendship. Well captured.

Hi Roger

Half in sun and half in shade but the lighting is superb and I can't decide if it's because of it or in spite of it. Either way, a very good shot capturing a special moment.

Hi Roger, the light is nicely handled with half of the shot in the sun and the rest in the shade. My youngest pair have just stopped sharing a room for the first time in five years but they are in and out of each others rooms all day..Fiona

Hi Roger,
I like everything about this picture, the shadow/highlight relation, the car is a very stylish object, and of course these kids are very camera friendly, and the sense of inseparable friendship really shines through this image.

Bom dia Roger,
Awesome snap shot and wise use of light/shadows.
Great lesson of chiaro/oscuroin a casual shot.

The light and shade are so good the scene almost seems 3d - not an easy achievement in B&W. No doubt the 2.8f helps but a fine candid shot.


Lovely moment well captured, the b&w works very well, I like so much this lighting.
They are so cute.

Hi Roger, Lovely scene of these boys and also captured with their natural moment which they are sharing their thoughts and happiness.
The imposing sun light on them has a nice effect to the composition. B/W works great here. Have a nice day
