A quick moment taken at a music festival last spring ~ the handsome papa appears to be much more in to the music scene than his bored little girl with her blonde curls and matryoshka cosy pants :)
In response to abmdsudi's (and other's) suggestions about the busy b/g, i do agree that in a perfect world these two would be further isolated from distracting activity around them. I'm working on learning photoshop this year, so perhaps I'll be able to come up with an adjustment. In the meantime, perhaps we can consider these two as islands of calm, each in their own mood, and in contrast to the fussy business of the world around them :)

beautiful double portrait with a great expression on the little girl's face. I liked the colours & skin tones too.
Thanks for sharing and have a nice weekend.

A very handsome cowboy you have photographed! but first thing that strikes me is that sweetie i think she carries more weight where concentration is paid more on her full face and lovely expression than her dad. The only draw back imho, you may not have noticed that the bright distracting colour in the bg is fighting for equal attention and doesn't help the image. I know I am knit picking but it may improve this image, I hope this helps rather than critisise, Congrats

L'attitude de cette petite fille est bien figée.Il semblerait que le mouvement de son doigt sur sa lèvre démontre peu-être une hostilité à la photographie!

nice portrait of the father and his daugther. Yes, she seem bored with the musical festival. Good colors and details.

I wonder if you asked him to look aside and adopt an expression of far-away pensiveness... On the other hand the little girl doesn't see the need to strike a glamorous pose: too young to be quite so self-aware.
A very appealing dual portrait.

Each one in its own world, the father seems very interested and the young girl bored! I like their pale blue eyes. I agree with Abmdsudi words, but how to shoot without having the colored background, except by fading the colors by post process.
have a nice sunday

so, there is place for everyone in the black mountains. the cool daddy's russian heritage is further revealed with the matryoshka cosy pants of the curly girlie, imo. well spotted from a distance. i could never think about the distraction of bright colors in the bg, were it not for abmdsudi's critique. anything could be done about it? don't think so.

Beautiful! I wish I have the talent to take candid pictures of people. I like the different expression of those two. Nicely captured with good details. Well done, tfs.
