She's adorable! Too bad you weren't able to get the face totally in focus. Good use of b/w.

She is very cute, would have liked this more if it were shot at eye level instead of shooting down at her, also her leg and foot appear out of proportion, not sure that was the intent.

She tilted her head as a call of "One more!" came her way. In typical toddler fashion, she flashed a look of exasperation while trying to keep a smile on her face. She wasn't always sure why they always took her picture. All she wanted to do was go and play. There were some girls over by the swing that looked like they were having fun, and someone was kicking a ball around over by the benches, and boy, was she hungry.

So she looked at the camera, and tilted her head, and ground her teeth just a very little bit, and hoped they'd click the button fast, and when the shutter fired, and she heard the click, she jumped up off the blanket and tore towards the swings as fast as her tiny little legs would carry her.

So it was she didn't hear her parents talking about how much she loved being in front of the camera and what a little poser she was, and that she'd probably grow up to be a model, but it was a good thing she didn't. Had she heard it, and had she been old enough to understand, she would have laughed her ass off.

Gorgeous photo. The soft focus really suits the sweet little girl.

The captivating expression of the girl makes the picture great. I would've liked a different croping, I dont like the empty space above her head. 8

Nice but the vignette is a little heavy handed and takes away from the image I think.
