Taken on a day at a local adventure park.
She was running up and down the platform shown here and I caught her just as she turned. I kinda like it ...

Image

PP was a slight crop, levels and clone stamping out some distratctions in the background.

What do you think guys ...?

Cheers

interesting, it does look underexposed looking at it now (on a work PC) but on my huey adjusted home monitor it looks perfect ...

It's a picture, but it is not a nice one.
You don't aim directly beneath someones feet, you need spacing.
As a photographer you can't shoot a child standing straight, BENT YOUR KNEES.
And please, a blue key as background is a great thing, but it is not if you dont photoshop it with some nice background.

Cripes Palieter I think that's a bit harsh. You are entitled to your opinion I guess.

I think it's a good picture for the following reasons
- great expression
- interesting pose
- fills the frame - don't really know why you want space - the focus is the child

as for the blue, that's the real bacjkround, I just got rid of some distracting bits. I could have completely changed it for something else I suppose but then it becomes more like art than a picture.
Cheers
