This image has been sitting in my archives for 16 years never realizing its potential. I tried several version of cropping and levels of colors from its true colors to traces of color. I felt the black and white provided the best choice for focusing on the young girl's faces and hands. Color was too distracting. I like to closeness and nurturing nature of the image.
