We are all getting older.

Last day of voting and I just broke the 6.6 mark. Really quite stunned by that. Opened early in the 5.5 range and it has just gone up all week. I really figured that this would be a bit too odd for the voters. I guess you just never know what will be appealing.

My plan is to do a couple of more of these with Aimee in them to have a proper series and set.

Pulls the eyes outwards in a reverse-cross-eyed fashion. Uncomfortable.

eta: almost works if you let your eyes defocus magic-eye style.

Your family aces it every time. And to think you thought of backing off of using yourself and your kids. LOL Way to to, Tim. You always come out on top.

Great clarity, title and positioning. Rates highly in my book.

Your photo gives a whole new meaning to four eyes. I love most of all the gazing eyes of each character seemingly looking deep into ones soul. Loved it. Thanks.

This was the one that jumped out at me the first seven times I went through the photos in this challenge. Sadly, I only voted it a 9 because I thought a 10 might be biased because I recognize you and love your work and etc. But now that I've finished voting and am looking at the tiers of photos, this does not in any way belong in the 9s. It's a truly beautiful piece of work. Classy, sincere, a timeless memory for your family. Outstanding. 10, of course.

the way you cropped and arranged the faces doesn't work for me.

Just great!!

They don't have your receding hairline yet :P
It's interesting (at least I think it is) that you used B&W here. Was it because you were trying to emphasise the eyes? Are they different colours in the colour version?
Regardless excellent take on the challenge.

Love the reference to the Paul Simon song. Your kids never cease to amaze me. Look at your son's eyes. The shape is EXACTLY the same as yours. Ain't genetics grand?

I wish you hadn't used the wide-angle for your self-portrait, the white space left and right your neck distracts a bit. Other wise well done, excellent b/w conversion. (You should try cropping this and using only the center third, that looks weird). Good luck!

Very nice and good use of the song title :- )

Alot of people tried something similar, but none executed this as well as you did. Just a great concept and each portrait was great within itself.

Lovely, Tim! (not voting)

Hmmmm, I think I know these people. Why so serious? :)
I like how this take really brings out the family resemblance.
