Day 2 with the new camera and still learning the menu options.

Far more important was the unexpected capture of this mother's smiling eyes.

Significant cropping of original image to get this.

Glad this resonated with a few of you. Thanks for the comments. I rarely shoot portraits of any kind.

Nice. Good tight composition and great backlight combined with foreground detail. Would make a very good newspaper shot, does not depend on fine detail to be strong.

Sweet moment captured. The happiness in one set of eyes, the contentment in the other.

Charming portrait, but when she sees you taking the photo, it's not candid.
