the other day, being a little ray of sunshine:

Image

1/250th of a sec @f5.6, 85mm

having just woken up and not really super thrilled about mommy taking her picture:

Image

1/50th of a sec @f5.6, 105mm

snuzzling zarrah - the apple doesn't fall far from the tree, this kid is horse obsessed and she's not even TWO yet...

Image

1/500th of a sec @f4.5, 50mm black and white conversion done thru channel mixer in cs3. it was challenging due to the high-key lighting.

all taken with my canon 20d and 28-135mm is.

The one with the horse is just excellent... 8)


Nice light one the first one and the second one is very funny. All good photos...

I'll stay with the last one, it looks outstanding to me.
the only comment, and this is a personal choice, would be to take the frame off, but again, it is just a matter of personal choice.

Cheers :)

That's a great expression in the second one and a really nice moment on the third!

I like pictures that tells a story, or makes the viewer build some kind of story when watching it. My opinion is that thats the case in your third picture (the one with the horse).

Very nice.

I like !

Those are magnificent - all three.

Portraits are awesome and the horsey-shot is dripping with ambiance!

Would've loved to see a variant where you were at eye-level with your daughter.

Cheers :-)

Love the sunlight and her smile on the first pic. Your second shot proves itself very natural, beautiful blond hair dangling down! Number three, like everyone said is very powerful, there sure is something going on in your daughters head!

Hope to see more tender portraits

Absolutely adorable. Every picture tells a story, her hair is amazing. The emmotion that leaps out from the screen in number three is "wow"

Cheers Ormina

palieter - i've spent many hours in a silver lab learning what good black and white looks like, and how to make it happen myself. it's not hard to translate to digital if you know what it's supposed to look like and how to use the software:) practice makes perfect!

What a great couple of shots of your little one - the second in particular is superb

As for the last one, my daughter loves riding and getting a shot like that is simply fantastic. I managed to grab a moment between my daughter and one of the stabled horses and was so pleased to have captured an instant like that
(http://www.flickr.com/photos/halcyon71/2459802793/in/set-72157605304343501/)

I think moments like this are why we love photography, especially when the results are so good. Well done indeed!

The third one is absolutely the best. And the second one is georgeous - the hair, the expression. Love them :D
