Challenge: Hidden Gem -- 1,000th Challenge! (Advanced Editing VII*)
Camera: Olympus C-8080
Location: St. Bernard de Clairvaux Spanish Monestary
Date: Nov 3, 2005
Aperture: 2.8
ISO: 50
Shutter: 1/80
Galleries: Emotive, Children
Date Uploaded: Mar 5, 2009

Taken back in November of 2005. Still learning all I could with my Olympus back then. The girls and I visited the St. Bernard de Clairvaux Spanish Monestary in North Miami Beach....yup you heard right an ancient Spanish Monestary in Florida?!?!?! Built in the 1100's is was bought and brought over to the states by William Randolph Hearst in 1925.

I had my daughter pose such that she was peeking to see what lies inside. I did two shots before a wedding party moved into the shot. At first I was annoyed but then I quickly realized that this moment tells a story so I told her to pose again. This is the beautiful result.

One of the four shots I was able to fire off - this one I left in color

This is sure to become a family heirloom. I would think it would have a place of honor on the family wall.

Makes a person think there is a story with the picture.

There is something so fun and youthful but still romantic about this, reminds me of the Secret Garden but I don't really know why, haha. Great in b&w.

Cute photo of a candid moment. B&W is well done and I like the shadow detail. It appears to be tilted a bit to the left, but maybe it's just an illusion.

Cute, nicely composed
03/15/2009 10:42:47 PM
This is a great shot. That archway almost makes you dizzy, and the girl sneaking a peak around the pillar is priceless.

Lovely peek and a beautiful building. Nice view in the inside.

Ohhh. . .I remember a photo like this, but I can't remember whose it is. But I loved it then, and I love it now! I would certainly consider it my best photo if I took it! It seems I remember it being a real life candid, which makes it even better. Fabulous! 10

Great composition, love the kid spying :) The tones of the b&w are great and really make the patterns of the arch stand out
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Inspiring moment to capture! I love the whimsical and even magical feel invoked by the details of the leaves and in the archway, as if the little girl peers into a different world altogether.

This is a candid shot in books and they are the best! I love how the pro photographers are talking about the next picture as the girl is looking in. Sometimes B&W pictures are hard to pull off but this one is turn out really good
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/11/2009 08:37:11 PM
Awesome candid (it doesn't look set up). There must be a story that goes along with this image.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/11/2009 05:45:54 PM
great shot
03/11/2009 05:08:15 PM
The girl peeking gives this a whole other story aside from the wedding. It really makes the picture work along with the editing. Not your typical wedding picture but much more and I am loving it.
