What I like about this photo is the contrast between Sean’s grimy little boy hands and the fragile delicate white egg. When he pulled it from the carton, he said, “Hey look mom! This egg is named after EB!” EB is a dear friend who has kept Sean well stocked in hand-me-down clothes and toys since he was born. And we adore her.
The original photo was pretty unremarkable. I cropped it for dramatic effect and then in Picasa I used the Focal Black and White feature to turn the photo into a black and white and selecting the focal point of the stamp on the egg for a pop of color. After that I sharpened it up a little bit and that was it.
