Taken in the courtyard of the Bishop's Palace at the Cathedral of Menorca in Ciutadella. This is a beautiful secluded spot to escape the city and this little girl was there with her young parents.
She was determined to explore the area herself, sometimes toddling a short distance and then squatting on the ground and looking around herself, quite content that her mummy was only a few feet away.

A well exposed and well composed picture of this little cutie. She is sitting very nicely with her legs pointing towards the corner, turning her head in the right direction. A director couldn't have placed her better. Her colourful clothes are a great contribution to the composition and her hair matches the background perfectly.

As my Swedish has captivated me, it seems Menorca you too:) (and not surprise me), I love this portrait of the Spanish girl is so cute! She should be calling her "mama." I like the vertical composition and the pose of the girl seems almost ready!
Have a great week!

This is indeed a school example for the subject "How to compose a picture!" The little girl is perfectly placed in the photo, positioned along the diagonal and looking towards the stones that provide the balance. Not only a well composed picture, sharpness and colours are outstanding. This is a favorite, definitely!

Now this little one's a cutie. I like how she's looking away from the camera, probably to her mamma. Excellent vertical frame, good colours and of course the sharpness is spot on. Great job, have a good evening.

I see that on Menoka you tried diffeent kinds of photos. I wonder if the maste thee commented the photos of the participants of the workshop. I like this one, the girl is cute, I like he colorful dress, and although we do not see her face, we can imagine how she lools for her mummy. I like the caeful composition.
