The "Princess" seated on her throne with the spoils of victory! There are many roads to power. Captured by the "cuteness factor" we both took images of this "Flower Girl" manipulating her way into getting a bouquet. She had picked out the flowers and taken them to Dad who told her to return them. She did not whine or cry, but looked at them so longingly, before putting them back, that he was powerless to resist. The workshop post shows her before showing them to her dad.

Very nice picture. Great POV, colors, and lighting. She looks angel-like.

Well Larry, we were both charmed by this little girl but You got better detail with your 200mm lens although I didn't see her as manipulative. I recognize that beauty is powerful; perhaps that was her attraction the beautiful flowers since the longing look occurred BEFORE she presented them to her Dad(?)

What a lovely picture you got! I like both of them, actually. Nice portrait!

Great snap shot. This look makes me melt. If I would be the father of this girl I probably would have bought all available flowers on the market for her.
Didn't I see the same girl posted by plimrn? Is that what people call deja'vu?

I love how her bright pinky red top is blending into the flowers she is holding, and the expression on her cute little face is priceless. Glad you kept the hands in the shot, shows how tightly she's holding the flowers, so sweet... Good catch.
