Gratulation for winning the contest. Great shot, very intimately and warm situation and the reservedly pp gave the picture the "first price image".

Thanks to every one.

It is a not cropped shot from my GX200 at 72mm equivalent zoom. I was a few meters from them but they were too absorbed by the reading. This is one of four shoots I got. Their Mom was inside the church praying the Rosary so i got plenty of time to lurk around and they never paid attention to me. At the end I said hi to both, they were just to cheerful little guys.

The four shots can be viewed at ... 365268619/

I shoot and always used the raw file, everything is done in Lightroom 2. Attached is the original jpg that came to with the raw file. I adjusted the basic exposure stuff and add a grad filter at the top left to get out the detail inside the church. I used some available sepia presets adjusted to my liking.

Thank you again
