The longer I stay a member on this site, the more you will see of my kids, the more you will see them grow right before your monitor.

If history is like the last bokeh challenge, little hits of dappled light that is in the bg will be the top winner of a silly virtual ribbon. Therefore, I shoot for myself.

Good capture, nice focus and composition...but the background is not enhanceing the subject. This might have worked better as a color image for a bokeh challenge. Then we could have seen the play between say the color of the grass and the colors of the dress. Make sense?

I like the angle of the light to portray the mood.

Great look. A definate model in the making. The light is a little harsh. IF you could get her to hold this pose again with controlled iighting great job....

Great tonal control, she looks like she means business too! I like how she is centered within the square, it makes the composition so much more powerful IMO than if you had gone the typical "rule of thirds" route, nicely done.

Meets challenge very well: "... take a photograph whose subject is enhanced by the bokeh of the background." Nice!
