This little girl's parent's were running a small sort of convenience store across from Hsuanchuang Temple, along Sun-Moon Lake, during a tour I was on with my mom and stepfather. She was enjoying her juice a lot more than she was enjoying being my model.
Man, I have been too busy to get out and take photos much lately, or to participate here either. I hope that will change soon, it should.

Hi Darren, nice to have you back, then, sounds as you missed it, too ;-)
A real cutie, with an execllent DOF, and a lot of details in her hair. Not willing to laugh, but not running away, too, it seems, and not suspicious.

The restlessness just gnaws away at you when you cannot get out...
She's got a transfixing gaze that comes across very well here; you have momentarily won over the juice at occupying her attention. Well done

J'aime beaucoup la netteté de la photo et le rendu de couleurs. quant à la petite fille elle n'a pas l'air précisemment enchantée ni effrayée d'être photographiée.
Je crois que le plus important pour elle c'est son jus de fruit :o)
ps) j'aurais sans doute coupé le haut de la photo.

good shot Darren except that i would definitly crop the arm off the top (is that an arm?). good DOF also.

Hie Darren, those piercing eyes looking at you over the juice bottle. Means business like saying "wei...can't you see I'm busy here !" Chinese, young and old, always look businessly serious looking don't they.
Just hate that arm growing from her head.
