Here is a low resolution iPhone photo that my son took of his friend Zachary. It was not cropped. He just aimed and snapped. I adjusted the hue a bit in post processing, but that’s about it. While the photo is a bit pixilated, it still has a soft, soothing feel to it — a great depiction of the innocence of youth.
Here’s another photo from Prospect Hill Plantation B&B. I took this of Jenny during a stroll around the manor house in the spring of last year. I liked the way the soft light of the early evening sun captured her smile and some highlights in her hair. The subtle red in her coat compliments the red in the American flag in the distant background.
