I don't know if people do this all over the world but here in Canada it's an Autumn treat.
Kids (of all ages) love to rake leaves and jump into them.
This little girl was celebrating her first birthday in her backyard.

A great portrait shot of this little girl playing in the leaves. I'm sure her mother would be more then thrilled to have this shot framed sitting on the mantle.
Good amount of sharpness in the little girls face, and very natural colors in the leaves.
Nicely done Kelley,

Oh, yes. People do this, if not all over the world, but at least in the parts of the world were we have real autumn, as in Norway. A month ago my girlfriend took a picture of me in almost the same way. And me, old as I am!
Anyway, this is a real charming child-portrait, placed in a setting with beautiful colors, and a good composition. I like your picture very much. Thanks for sharing.

Hello Kelley. This is a wonderful shot with great autumnal colors that are in good contrast with the girl's jacket and an amazing sharpness. What a sweet little girl... In the look of her eyes you can see all the joy and happiness of the world! Welldone!

The cutest photo ever. She's so happy in her game.
Very good captured moment.

this is really cute, and the colors are very natural.
I would have appreciate a shallower depth of field, but this is just to criticize...
The detail is good on her face and she seems sooo happy :)

Lovely shot Kelley. She seems having a good time. I like the composition with all the leaves in foreground together in a party time. Nice capured!

Yesterday, I walked in a court covered with leaves. The odor remember me of younger day and this small girl surely will remember of this odor when older. This photo is the most beautiful memory that a person can have. Just to see the smile of the child.

Gosto muito da forma como o motivo principal foi locado na foto, criando um efeito bem forte e marcante. Otima qualidade fotografica.
Thanks for sharing.

Beautiful capture :). One thing though, it might be my monutor but i would remove the excessive magenta. It is very noticable especially on the little girl`s face. Thank you for sharing...
uccia84 (720) 2006-11-26 17:22
thanks for your suggestions... seeing your photos I make you my compliments and this photo it is sweet..
ElAprendiz (30) 2007-01-27 21:28
With the anxious thing that is the children, since you did so that this small one remained there?
Product of the patience (I think), you have obtained a perfect composition within a very tender photo. Congratulations.

I saw this photo and could not help but give it a compliment. It is a good photo showing a good depth of field, sharpness, and colors. You can really see how much fun the child is having while playing in the leaves.

***** I just do not have words. It is a 5-star photo. It's better than great! Everything is so natural even the baby girl's smile. Try more portraits. You've got a good eye to capture the right moment.
