I just thought this was beautiful. I loved the depth of field with the clear sharpness. I took this when I went to do a photoshoot at a waterfall with my freind and she just looked so happy in the fresh water and I caught her off guard with this one. I hope it does well.

This is quite lovely. I like the movement of the water. Wonderful tones and lighting.

I agree with your post challenge comments. I too received comments about my candid looking posed, I think that people tend to forget that as humans we do the most interesting things when we figure no one's watching. Isn't that the idea of a candid. That being said, I always show my subject, the photos that I've taken and ask if I can use them.

Since this particular subject was the subject of your photo shoot, I doubt obtaining permission was difficult.

Beautiful capture, great depth of field and deserved a far greater place than 109. You have ever right to be happy with this photo. Keep up the good work.

Continued success and happy shooting, Max!

Beautiful capture! I also like the DOF. The lighting is excellent and the composition is flawless. I didn't vote on this during the challenge, but I would have given it a 9.

Sometimes it suprises me how a picture this good only gets 109th place! I only wish that I can take a picture this beautiful one day! Great job, idea, picture, etc!

Wow! What a beautiful candid. I think 109th place is ridiculous for this photo!! I hate it when that happens.

Great photo, I thought this would have done much higher in the scoring. Don't you just love those looks posed comments. If that were the case, I think over 1/2 of the photo's in the challenge looks posed, and most of the previous Candid challenge winners also.

Very pretty expression and nicely lit face- not sure about the deep shadows on her neck- hard to distinguish dark hair from dark/shaded skin. I still like it though. 8.

Nice moment, good lighting and DOF, good BW but I'd love to see it in colour

Good photo, but it does not look candid to me. Looks posed. Haha, if it is a candid, I want to know where you take your pictures..... :P
