Challenge: Best of 2007 (Advanced Editing VII*)
Camera: Nikon D70s
Lens: Nikon AF Nikkor 50mm f/1.8D

Aperture: f/1.8

I feel this is my Best of 2007 because most of my best images include my daughter and this one doesn't require alot of post processing. Over-editing is such a tragedy.
Editing: Converted from RAW in CaptureNX, set neutral, white and black control points. Feathered vignette & slight crop in Photoshop.
Prediction 5.65, hoping for a 6, happy as long as it scores above a 5.
I hope you enjoy this one as much as I do.

The shadowy, liquid colors of the grass and the bushes is just gorgeous. Very beautiful.

if I were to describe this, it would sound like a standard dpc photo, but this is really striking for some reason. something about the perspective and the dof. and the dappled light.

I would have tried to ensure that my vanishing point is either up to the left or right corner or smack dab at the centre at the top...drifts to the right. I may have also tried to get a little lower behind the subject. Good effort. Good Luck. 5.

I gave this a 7 - you'll probably get a better vote from posthumous ....

Great contrasting color. a few suggestions, lighten up the foreground a hair, and increase your f-stop (increase exposure time) to increase your depth of focus. Also, a lower perspective would have given us the child's view, that may add to the shot.
