My wife and daughter were the Art Directors for this photo of my granddaughter, who was enticed to head into the field after her stuffed toy got thrown out there. I had no idea what picture they wanted me to take until Allie got out there and I saw her in my viewfinder! I took over 20 photos, but the ones with her face in it showed the dreaded pacifier. Also, this was her "shoes are evil torture devices" stage.

Photoshop Elements 3 - cropped, levels, unshapr mask, boosted saturation slightly, saved for web.

This is adorable. Imagine what it would be like to walk in grass up to your knees. Quiet a challenge for such a little girl.

The composition and detail are good, as is the color level and a photograph sure to make a parent beam looking at it ((8))

I, personally, would prefer to see the face. The eyes speak a thousand words...

Superb! There's so many nice things to say about this! Depth of field--right on! Motion blur on that little leg taking its next step! Colors--so crisp and realistic! And look at the skin on that baby! No question, one of the best characterizations of a young child I've ever seen.

Ok...have a few more: !!!!!!!

Too cute, I love the colors. You feel the precarious balance of the girl and wait to see if she remains standing upon the next step!
