Superb group portrait (love the picture you put in your link too) and here the eyes count a lot. The ones smiling at you, the ones that look at you in a harder way, the ones that avoid you... and even the ones over the T-shirt, looking far away in a mysterious and dreamy way. I like this storytelling portrait (and where's the man of the family ? Suspense... ;)

Good shot. The color is perfect, it did set the mood of the picture.

Hello, hope you have had a nice Christmas day with the ones you love.
Interesting meeting and group portrait in its environment... may be i would prefer a little bit more contrast on this shot, the rendering is a lttle dull...

@Evelyne Dubos: Hi Evelyne, thank you very much for sharing your thoughts.
I intentionally made this dull in terms of contrast, I was trying to deviate from the usual shiny, polished images seen in most people's pages. I was trying to let the viewer focus on the subject, unfortunately, this didn't seem to work for you. hehe anyway, I still appreciate you share your honest views :)
superb image, happy holiday season, regards from Athens.
