A gift that any adult would appreciate but the average toddler cannot.

BTW, we love our daughter but she isn't always the most cooperative model. We were forced to bribe her with an entire banana (we normally serve halves) to get her to pose. I guess she has inflated holiday rates :)

Shot with two CFL lamps (check eyes for approximate locations) as my flash setup isn't quite finished.

This one has that ''awwwww'' factor I'm always a sucker for... ;-)
Great portrait, great DOF, excellent title.

Great job!
Good luck!

Tell her she can play Magician with it by putting it in an envelope, writing on the envelope Brad Petersen, 555 Broke Lane, Poorsville, CA and drop it in the mailbox.
She will watch it disappear before her very own eyes!

Money may be an uncreative gift, but rarely is it stupid. She's a lovely young lady! The shot may need a bit of work on white balance - her skin tone is a bit yellow/green, but the monitor I'm using tends to emphasize yellows.

:) How cute! Ummmm. .. .if she is wanting to get rid of her stupid gifts. I'll gladly take them off her hands. Course. . .being so late in the voting, I'm sure she's had plenty of other takers already. Darn.

I've seen this happen many times! She has no concept of the value of money. This is a stupid gift for a child this young. 10!

Nice idea and i know just how she feels, she could make a paper airplane. IMO the colours seem a little off.
