WOW A pair of really nice pictures karl. The first on has an "old and faded look to it. Even the edges of the picture are an old off white color. They look like my baby and toddler photos Your Children can sure pic a good subject.
Take Nothing but Pictures--Leave Nothing but Footprints.
Excellent! Very effective lighting and great DOF placement in both pics. I like the way in pic 2, that you've got everything sharp from the foreground wing to the ants on top of the fly. You and your kids make a great team!
