After all these weeks stuck at home, my daughters really needed some outdoor activity. While I usually don't enter "standard editing" challenges (personal taste), I thought this one could be an excuse to spend some time in the nearby woods. As expected, they both enjoyed fooling around in front of the camera, running everywhere and taking poses. Not the most artful pictures ever obviously, but we all had some great time, so I'm happy.

And thank you so much for the kind votes and comments, Emilie is thrilled :)

Yeah, I don't go for this type of sci-fi fantasy stuff, but as usual you really made this look realistic. ;-P Congratulations!

Whew! I was surprised, too, but thought I must have missed it somehow.

Christophe! There's no way that's Emilie! She was only born two years ago... max. :D

She's GORGEOUS! But, that doesn't surprise me, having seen her parents.

I love how sharp you've gotten her eyes while in motion. That cut off arm really bothers me. LOVE the colors.

Thanks for proving again that you can ribbon in any photography arena. :D

Congratulations on adding another ribbon to your pile!

Beautiful hair, beautiful eyes, beautiful child. Congrats on the win, Christophe. I love your "other" work but it's wonderful to see something "real".

Yes! Emilie is 5.5, while Juliette is 1.5. Much fun, as you can imagine.

Fantastic photo to remind some DPCers what a great photographer you are in whatever genre you chose.

Congrats on the Blue!

Great focus on the face. A pity that all movement is frozen to achieve that, but I realize, you can't have it all.
