I love them both...hard to choose! I can tell that both are having a good time.

Sally said...

Both lovely. Really like the feyness of the fairy-girl (err, tautology?) but the fellow is having a wow of a time. I think I prefer it, becasue of the citrusey colours.

Nathalie said...

I rarely have a chance to do portraits so I really enjoyed the occasion here.

J'ai rarement la chance de faire des portraits, j'ai donc vraiment profité de l'occasion ici.

The young girl of course.
Because her look in one's eye...

Richard said...

No contest. The first is fun, but the second is full of photo mileage for me. I like the light, the fairytale bokeh, and the asymetric composition. The expression has a nice ambiguity about it that engages your curiosity, and the inclusion of the second figure adds something else. You can't beat B+W for skintones

Just excellent photography.

Abraham Lincoln in Brookville, Ohio now playing the part of Mrs. Zac Efron's employee.

No contest ...the B&W, and the B&W makes it an even stronger candidate.

Celle en couleur parce qu'elle est en couleur et celle de la petite fille avec sa grosse quenotte en moins, les fleurs dans ses cheveux et ses taches de son sur son joli petit nez. En fait les deux mais avec une préférence pour celle en NB.

Pictures of children win hands down. Reminds me of 'meine Kinder' when at a similar age.
Anyway, the bloke with the happy smile comes a close second.
They all smile like that down here, - comme vous vous rappelleriez bien.
Great photographs, Nathalie. It's nice to see that Spring is in the air; I hope the mistral has vamoosed !

Ici, c'est automne et les jours deviennent plus courts. Sally vient en France et nous serons intéressés de voir si elle prend, et nous montrons, ses photos. Espérons qu'on a l'électricité dans vos nick-of-the-woods ! !

Jours heureux à vous à bel Avignon, et carnaval joyeux à tous.

La fille elle est plus mignonne. ha ha
Elle est une partie du carnaval et les adultes sont les spectateurs.

Pas de doute, une préférence pour le noir et blanc, et cette jolie minette!
Bisous

the little girl with the missing tooth and warm direct gaze is captivating!!!!

Therese said...

La photo de l'ange bien sur! Reste à savoir qui parmi les deux est l'ange?

Nathalie said...

I personally like the b&w fairy photo best, but I also wanted to show the really loud orange guy because he really represents the spirit of the drum band leading the Carnaval.

Kate said...

Wonderful portraits. Love the missing tooth and the hat and smile!

Jilly said...

it's like choosing between apples and oranges. An impossible contest because the subjects are so different. But what appeals to me - emtionally - is the child. Beautiful portrait, Nathalie. But both are excellent.
