Jared Christopher Martin It's difficult not to mention the rabbit ears, which blend the subject into a snow laden hibernal forest, and also provide some warmth for small and tender ears. aLuckily for them most children are unencumbered by stoic age and learned manners, and the real attitude of the inner moment is instantly reflected in a pose. I can sense this photo session ending soon and a warm fire waiting in a brightly lit house nearby. Like to comment on the evolution of the borders which have quietly moved into a significant relationship with the overall image in the same way that the painted arches and colonnades surrounded iconic figures in medieval and early renaissance portraits. They (the borders) are works of art in themselves. Wonderful, as Hengki said, you capture the spirit, perhaps the subversively real spirit, of winter, which has always been warmed by children and endured by adults..
Deborah Parkin Thank you Volker for your kind comment - really appreciate it :)

Deborah Parkin Thank you to everyone for taking the time to look and respond to this image - I really do appreciate it - comments and appreciations - and thank you to Art Limited for featuring this work - it is always a great honour.
Sorry for being so quiet here on AL. I am afraid life has been getting in the way and my internet time has been very limited. I will do my very best to get round to seeing your wonderful work as soon as I can and as always I really do appreciate people who take the time to look or comment on my work. :)
This image was my first venture out in the snow .. large format photography and sub zero weather is quite tricky.
