This little one was so much fun, as were her family. They were all coaching her to look at the camera. She obviously had no idea what they were talking about. Such expression!!

Indeed, it is her expression that makes the photo to be so beautiful. The DOF worked to your advantage. I love it. Well done.

You have perfectly captured the kid. What and how he/she is looking is interesting. Congrats.

A very cute face but she certainly does not look happy for this occasion. Maybe she does not realise her picture will be seen all over the world! I hope she will find a copy somewhere and keep it until she gets old...

Perplexed and serious at the same time! Wonderful capture, very well done.
thaprem (2558) 2009-07-29 3:50
A striking one here...
The expression is as if amused at what you are doing.. :)

il a vraiment l'air curieux cet enfant, il est complètement absorbé ou intrigué par quelque chose, belle composition, bravo.

Hello Karen. As it seems, you closed the small girl into your heart. It is a pleasure to regard this awake face with the small scratches and the blue eyes. Best regards, Wolfgang.

I like very much this portrait: light, colors, composition, all is very nice, but I love overall the expression of the eyes.
gunbud (34066) 2009-07-29 20:19
You have certainly caught a very quizzical look in the pretty blue peepers.
Very clear color espeically in the rosy cheeks.
I don't think it will be easy pulling the wool over those lovely eyes.

Fantastic color and lighting, great blur and sharp effect between background and foreground subjects, good close up to show her innocense face, just remember me the science study between the images, lights and eyes, thanks for sharing.

Beautiful light on her face. I like this composition. Well done.

Next interesting portrait.
Good frame and light.
I like the depth.
feather (51130) 2009-07-30 13:53
Her expression is priceless! It's kind of an old expression on a young face. Perfect off-centre framing with the space in front of her. Good DOF choice. Well done
MarcT (20964) 2009-07-30 22:00
Now that's a funny little girl. She looks soooo serious.
axiotea (21651) 2009-07-31 23:56
I like the surprised expression of the little girl and the nice play of light/shade... love the colors and the blurred BG giving more impact to the young model. A fine sharpness too!

Hi Karen ,
com esta usted?
No hay nada en el mundo como la sonrisa de un niño verdad?
Tienes un estupenda coleccion de retratos de niños muy adorables y me he permitido añadir una de mis fotos a tu fantastica galeria.
Un cordial saludo.
Keitht (1304) 2009-08-03 6:56
It may be a good child portrait, but surely better suited to TL as it tells us absolutely nothing about the world, apart from the fact that there are kids in it!
meltemi (0) 2009-08-04 9:45
a nice and intimate portrait. The expression is great and you have connected with the subject well, as the eye contact works and is intense. Nice details and exposure and a good distribution of light to bring out the atmosphere. Very good work.
All the best.
jlbrthnn (76037) 2009-08-06 3:44
I suppose that it is the face of an adorable little girl, who already seems to be well soaked. The portrait is of any beauty, so much for the light, the colors and the blur of background. Very pretty work and excellent realization. Congratulations.
Have a nice day
