As they saying goes "I'm in your hands" & so is this little family.

I agree the studio backdrop also looks rough & ready.

I'm sure they will be transformed by your skills.  :)

Very nice Peter - the sepia tint seems to suit this little family well & the clean up really brings the clothing to life.

Thank you
Keith

A simple B&W with a bit of ageing. This is restore of the original one, Keith.

What a difference from the two rough copies I had - so much cleaner & clearer & you've toned down that chair!  ;D

Thank you Pat
