I took this picture on "Take your daughter to work day". I actually took my 9 year old niece with me to the research institute where I work. She is seeing the fruitfly in the microscope for the first time. This is my first submission to dpchallenge and I am thrilled to participate.
I only cropped this image.

pic says nothing about proportion. title does. however, this is a photo contest, not a title contest.

This is a nice candid of this young scientist. The exposure and color is good. The framing is tight and intimate. I don't really think it says anything about proportion without the massive hint from your title. I just want you to know I'm scoring low because of that. Otherwise, I like the photo.

DOF is nice, but I'm not sure it works with the proportion theme without the title.

Prety girl, but to win you need the fly.

ive looked at this picture so many times, and i still have no clue where the title comes from, or how it fits in this challenge...

A very serious project, I see. We have to take your word for it, but I am sure you can be trusted.
