She was in a playful mood and found an old scarf that was lying around. Just add some window light and the 85/1.4.

Maybe you prefer the sharpness in this one.

A nice image which could have be even better if the eyes were sharper. I like the pose and compo of #1 more, Charles. Taken wide open I suppose?

Nearly wide open. Captured during the moment so there was some subject movement.

That's what I thought. Trying to get sharp shots of children wide open is really very testing. I always have to chase after them and the phrase "don't move" is all too common in my vocab. :wink: :biggrin:

Indeed, photographing children on the run can be a challenge. Normally it isn't an issue for me. Guess I am out of practice since I wasn't able to shoot for a while. :wink:

I processed it again using my normal methods. Does that seem better?

Thanks John. There is just something about natural light that strobes and flashes can't do.

Hey Charles, very nice work as always - I am not so bothered by the eyes' sharpness as others, I think it gives a natural feeling to the image; I do prefer the first picture to the second as far as composition and overall feeling despite the second being sharper on the eyes - and yes, kids do move a lot :biggrin: thanks for sharing,

Charles,

I also like the first shot best (but why chose when you don't have to...both are great shots). Each shot gives a glimpse of the joy that is your daughter! Thanks for sharing that joy with us!

Mike
