She was rather perplexed that I could think they are worth a photo but kindly agreed to it. The white kaolin is " ... for the complexion." I had to clone quite a bit of unwanted background out, though. Did it work? You decide.

Hello dear Neels - How lovely to see you here again, it's been an age since you last posted. My guess is that your business is keeping you running about, I hope it is all going well. What a lovely and very attractive mum. Her direct look at your lens immediately makes a connection between the two of us; she looks like a gentle and caring soul. Soft light brings out the beauty of her skin. What a cute child she has, no doubt much loved and precious. I've never tried cloning but I think you have done quite a decent job here. It is a little noticeable around the top of mum's head but I think this type of PP work requires lots of practice and skill.
How's life in SA? All's well in Windhoek
Take care a warm regards Rosemary

mother and child are beautiful, I like very much their closeness in this classic pose and their glances are very interesting, especially the mother's. So, I think you did well to isolate them from the busy background and give us the chance to appreciate all these qualities and the fine, warm colours as well. Maybe there's a way to warm up the backdrop hue a bit, though. The soft lighting is superb. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great evening,

Ik ben blij opnieuw iets te zien van u zeker een moeder met kind blijft een zeer mooi onderwerp.
De kleuren zijn mooi, u hebt deze foto gemaakt in hoge kwaliteit, met de speciale behandeling op hun gezichten.
Heel mooi foto, goed gedaan. Bedankt.
Groeten uit BelgiŽ,

A proud of this mother and son portrait, love the expression you've captured on your face and the intensity of his gaze, really fantastic.
The pasta that lead in the face, I guess it must be like for sun protection in a country in Asia, I've seen ....
Wonderful range of colors in very soft tones.
An image with lighting and sharpness are very well managed.
Well done. I love this image.
Have a good day.

Really good close up double portraits of the mother and child. Love the expression of the proud mother and the little funny expression on the baby looking sideway :) Very cute. Good color and lovely moment between the mother and child.
