Love this. The tones are perfect for it too. Thrilled to see you get a ribbon. Should have already had several with the great shots you have using your daughter as the model. She's so cute!

Congrats! Seriously good communication of emotion without the title, the title merely amplifies.

  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/08/2006 01:25:44 PM
I really like this shot. The composition is perfect with the two main elements (the girl and the old house). I love the B&W for this shot, it totally says a lot more than if it were in color. Good choice.

This is awesome. After so many snapshots, this is so refreshingly beautiful photographically speaking. I love the old house. The sepia. Even the little girl has a nostalgic look about her. Great job.
