painterly effect.

If you look at his portfolio the people have a painterly effect which adds to the drama. It no longer looks like a photo but a hybrid with painted people and more natural looking backgrounds.

if you look at the same area on the left of the tree you can tell
that he copied the same bush over and over 3 times. I've never really
studied his edits this closely and didn't notice the flaws. His
pictures are outstanding but at least on this one, he could have done
better. It does make you want to find the nearest oak tree or
something similar and pose some kids...extract it and add a
interesting wooded background (Perhaps if you took some early morning
shots in the woods with the fog and light streaming through).

On this one, and if so, how many others. If you zoom in on the
backside of the boys legs on the right, you'll see a bit of lighter
pixels along his leg which are lighter than the overall background
indicating an extract or selection of sorts. If this is the case,
gives him a lot of latitude with what he does with the background,
blur, color, saturation etc. If he does this on others, this guy
must spend a lot of time on those images which are brilliant non the
less. But I still think the kids are actors for him and well posed.
