My son always gives Grandpa a hug and big fishlipped smootch before he goes to sleep at night, So I set up one of my AB-800's with a shoot through brelly and waited until it was time for bed and snapped this shot.

PP Opened in Camera Raw, Adjusted Exposure, Levels, Curves, Hues and Sats, then opened file in PS4, Cropped and Rotated, Adjusted tones and Highlights and Shadows. Resized, Sharpened, Added Frame and Saved for Web. Would have loved to add some vignetting to this one to give it bit more center focus but Basic Rules do not allow.

Not really sure if this will sink or swim, going to toss it in the lake anyway and see.

Hey it floated. Thanks for the awesome comments and the better then expected score. Looking at the folks who I am in the top ten with I am very pleased.

nice. Good choice B&W. T-shirt a bit whiting out.... picky picky picky ;-) B&W again.... what is it about B&W that captures emotion more than colour?

Very nice contrast. It's a good thing you used people because voters are harsh on inanimate objects no matter how good the photo is.

A little too much noise.
But love the idea.
