Inquisitive Innocence

(ISO 80, f/2.8, Shutter Speed 1/80 sec)

My first portrait shot on my Photoblog (including previous one). I am not much good in shooting people and i need to learn a lot before i can even shoot an average quality portrait pic. I shot a lot of them when my nephew and niece were here last month. This one of Vyomi (Vyom : My sis son) was taken when he was sitting in the toy train at Railway Museum. Those innocent, inquisitive eyes is what i like best in this pic.

Post Processing : B/W mode and enhanced contrast

Phew...kitne time ke baad apun ne Deepak bawa ke blog per MF kiya.
Kahan hain SD! :P

Man, every picture on this blog has had my eyes wide open. But this one's FABULOUS! Good job!
How old was your nephew when you took this?

Aha! I see title has been changed :P NICE!

True. I think portraits need a lot of work in terms of the frame. But the best part is that the subject is usually very interesting. Half the work is done already. And here, the other half is good enough :D

Hi, I think you are very modest! Photo is powerful, contrast and light perfect. The eyes exeptional.

There is an innocent quality to this pic, and at the same time, once again there is a haunting quality too.
