Love it, but would really, really, really love it with the pushchair cloned out!

What you need are lenses, more lenses, bigger lenses, better lenses, faster lenses, and when you have these, your pictures will be perfect!

No Andrew ! No, no a thousand times no! It would ruin the composition and compromise the "story" element. I took several shots and edged around a bit to get kids, mum and dad and the pushchair in just the "right" positions...

(But, of course, I respect your opinion, implicitly!)
Best wishes,

Andrew

Superb shot. Needs the pushchair. Did you get the details of the parents to send them a copy?
You can see some of my photos here if you are so inclined

I thought of going to offer them my e-mail to send them a copy... wish I had now.
Best wishes,

Super B&W image. The pushchair completes the 'family' element.

Wonderful composition, a lovely family moment, such a shame you didn't get their email address, they would have been thrilled.
Kind regards Maria

On reflection I think you have got this absolutely spot on and the lack of the pushchair would make the shot look set-up.

It is, as always, superb Andrew!

No need to apologise, Andrew. I see your point. I often "clean-up" images and get rid of distractions but in this case...

Still wish I'd spoken to them, though. Not the sort of shot you can do yourself!
Best wishes,

Andrew

To find the family ask the local paper to publish it. Not a bad little story.

That is a great idea, bit of publicity for you too Andrew!
