I had a session with a darling little three year old this week. I really loved the silouette images of her sitting with her doll at the window seat. This particualer one, being one of my favorites. I love the slight tilt of her head and the expression on her face. She looks like she is really trying to listen to what her baby doll is saying. I typed in all kinds of search words for usernames and was very pleased to find ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/31_N.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/31_N.gif', '/') + 1) .

Post Challenge: I just noticed that my date stamp is off by one whole day. I had this scheduled session on Monday the 20th, but it was recorded for the 19th. CRAP....that sucks!!!!

That is what I always try to do. Thank you for the ribbon and further-more the wonderful compliment.

As it happened, I shot the winning picture at dawn on Monday, so naturally the stamp showed it to be at sunset on Sunday, before the challenge was announced :-(

At least you have the Posthumous for this one (he doesn't care about the date stamp), and you didn't lose a ribbon, so I guess that helps?

Still a wonderful shot!


Thanks Bear....I appreciate the kind words.

So many great details: the motion blur of her finger, the little glasses, the position of her feet. It's a very sweet photo. Sorry to hear about the mess-up with the date stamp. :-/

I have another ribbon-winner but I can't resist this photo, so I'm going to give out 2 yellows. My Posthumous Yellow Ribbon for you.

Well my goodness!!!! I never thought in a million years that I would receive one of these. Thanks so much!!!

Jennifer, this is so amazing. It has that Jennifer Short Magic in every way. It makes my heart feel all mushy just looking at it -- which I have enjoyed doing for what seems like forever!

This is SO beautiful Jennifer, her little glasses touch my heart.

This is a wonderful shot, I had little hope it would appeal enough to ribbon when I saw it, and I'm glad it finished as well as it did.
08/03/2009 12:31:38 AM
Fantastic - sorry you didn't ribbon but still a nice finish. Congrats!

I'm so glad this was in the top ten! but if it were up to me, it would have ribboned. Extremely well done, congrats!
