Oh my. This one. Is amazing.
I'm not big on the super desaturated look. For me it is either full blown colour, a SLIGHT desat, or contrasty B+W.
*edit* Did you crop the sides or the top/bottom? I dig the square look, but I wonder what some more records to the left and right might do to the composition.
Also, is he eating?
He is eating, I think. I crop for 5x7 or 8x10 print dimensions. In this shot the sides are cropped a little bit and I straightened it a tad. The camera was on the floor and with the strong light behind me, couldn't use Live View to see anything. Essentially took this blind.
Image #1 was an experiment. Some images I like the desaturated look, others I don't. This one I am about 85% happy with, but I think I am going to try running my normal B&W conversion through it and see if I like it better.
Thanks for the kudos though, it means a lot. I have also learned to embrace grain. I did not add in any grain in post, this is the grain created by the high ISO I had to shoot indoors (some shots are 3200ISO).
