Terrible as usual...I hate your work (because mine is crap compared to it).

Just kidding, of course, Chuck...

As far as processing...can't you just open in LR4, then open it in photoshop and process like you used to? That's how I handled my 5DMark2 before I bought a version of PS that supported the raw files directly. After that, I just sort of used LR as my shoot keeps track of everything for me.

Anyhow...good (no...great) stuff!

Oh my...

...Chuck, you hit the ball out of the park, out of the city and across the pond. I think I saw it flying over my house...

Chuck- if someone asked me who my inspirational photographers were, you fall in the first breath. I like how you capture seemingly ordinary situations and make the viewer stop and take in everything that's happening in each image.

Nice variety, hard to pick a favorite. With this being a documentary, I think you did great! I would be happy with the results.

This is such a refreshing approach to family photography. I loved looking at these and felt like I was experiencing it with them. The images with the grandparents will be treasured forever.
