this is my daughter playing at the Berkshires; its not my 'best' photograph but last minute i figure i should submit -something- and this is one of my mothers faves from our trip up there; I'm sure people would rather see it in color but i really enjoy black and whites- therefore I chose to convert to B&W hope it does well...

a bit overexposed on the highlights
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Nice picture, a wonderful moment well captured.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Cute shot. Wish she was a little more the point of focus. Looks like the focal point hits the water in front of her.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/15/2009 11:55:37 AM
Very cute, she's having fun. Not sure I like the bright light on her head and arm though, sorry.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/15/2009 05:35:32 AM
sweet 'o times...
If the water at the beginning of the lake wasnt sharp, I would like it much better... (so the whole thing would be unsharp)

thx, brano ;)

recommend a vertical shot for this.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/15/2009 12:13:20 AM
A bit soft IMO
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/14/2009 11:49:08 PM
I can just feel the joy this little girl is feeling. Maybe a little dodge and burn on the over and underexposed parts of her body would make it even better.

I wish she were facing us.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/14/2009 04:28:05 PM
I honestly wish there was a touch more blur in the figure here to match the joy she seems to be feeling. conversion to b&W a little muddy and flat - maybe a touch of curves could help. 6

I see the joy and love how she is framed by nature. 9

  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/11/2009 12:01:13 PM
i like the composition, but overall it is a little soft.

Joy indeed. I'll bet this one is getting hammered for being soft, but not by me!
