This next series of images in b&w were taken one morning on the beach in my home town. I happened to be sitting about 3 metres away from this little girl who was accompanied by her nanny. She caught my attention whilst she was having a conversation with a street vendor who was trying to flog his animal art made from beads and wire to the nanny. She had not noticed me at first and was unaware that i was photographing her. This was the last image after a series of about 6 shots when she realized the camera. Although all were taken in colour I converted them to b&w as it is an issue of choice regarding how I wished to portray the little girl and what I want you the viewer to see and concentrate on.
Your constructive critique most appreciated.

Hi Lynette. A cute candid photo of the girl, in which the tight framing works well and the rather strong light contrasts were handled in a balanced way. I like the moment you captured with her left hand playing along her face. The b&w works well for me, it delivers a good tonal range and helps to eliminate some possible color distractions in the background.

Welcome back Lynette.
It is a beautiful, natural portrait you share with us. I like her pose with her finger, and the play of light which is highlighting her hair.
