  1. That is a very mischievous grin. I sense a spoil or other unwelcome intrusion. Very nicely timed portrait of behaviour.

  2. Great lighting and exposure – the tonal selection is very appealing in this and goes along way to being as important as the subject matter. The action with the spoons and their expressions certainly hold the viewer’s attention and make this a first-rate double portrait.

  3. Yes, lovely moment and a very good mono conversion. You’ve achieved an almost silvery look – not film, but tonality. Very nice and well controlled too.

    I didn’t guess the photographer, so you’re staying one step ahead!

  4. I agree with the comments about the technical quality of this image, it is quite stunning.
    The expression on your grandson’s(?) face is just magic.

    • Thank you Rex.

      They are relatives of mine but they’re actually my brother’s grandsons. Although they are not brothers they have spent a lot of time together growing up. I might post another one that includes my grandson as I’m curious if others see in it what I do.

  5. Add another to agreement on the technical aspects of this. However, I’m troubled (I guess in a good way) about the gaze of the chap on the right. It seems neither in front of nor behind the subject of his interest. As a consequence it took me too long to see the spoon in his hand. The position of the glass in this adds a fulcrum around which neither side balances which works well as it further emphasises the gaze aspect. Given how intertwined the subjects are, perhaps an even tighter shot/crop would work.

    • I think he’s focusing on the part of the head that he’s just about to whack with the spoon! Thanks for commenting.
