I am not a very original thinker so when this challenge was announced I immediately thought of my entry for the previous one ' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/0-999/916/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_718231.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/0-999/916/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_718231.jpg', '/') + 1) . ' this has been one of my more well recieved shots so I asked Sofia would she like to do a re-imagining of the shot. It's never hard to get her in front of the camera, so I asked her to put on a dress and go down in the yard and "twirl back and forth". Fired off about 25 shots and knew immediately upon reviewing them in Bridge that this would be the one I would use.

I echo Ken...DUDE! LOL how appropriate that i should get my first HM with a shot of Sofia...Many thanks to all for the nice (and constructive comments)

Such a wonderful portrait. I hope this is framed on a wall somewhere for the family to appreciate. Just timeless.

I love the perspective and the colors. The blue of her eyes and the green of the grass just rock. Your portraits are truly amazing.

This is one of those shot I look at and think, "I wish I took that." It is lovely, and one of those DPC shots that really sticks with me.

Well done! The perspective is different and I you did a great job making it successful. The tones and contrast is nice!

This is such a lovely picture. The slight movement of the dress just adds nicely.
Agree I also love your pic with her holding the flower. Both just so nicely done.

this is amazing- the eyes really pull u into the image, the focus on her face is so lovely and yet there are details in the OOF areas as well that i think i can make out- what a lovely little angel you have! and the pattern is amazing- with the flair out of the skirts... you must be so proud of your princess- and yes i say princess because i can't imagine my little one ever not being my little princess so i imagine all parents feel the same about their little ones!

My favourite of the challenge - excellent use of a shallow depth of field, and a superb photograph.

If I'm not mistaken, this either belongs to Jennifer or Jason. Love the angle you shot this at. One of my favorites this round.

This really turned out well, Jason. Beautiful eyes, and great depth control.

Your image is well captured. Her expression is captivating. Unfortunately, her skin and hair have a bluish tint that has reduced my vote by one point.

Very nice portrait. Like the perspective, great use of shallow DOF to accentuate her face.

Jason, this image is gorgeous of Sofia. I love the way you have processed it, composed the image, and your use of DOF is super. I hope to this one ends on the front page. It is splendid! (not voting)
