    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.

  2. Nice shot Charles!! The eyes look a bit soft to me (and I'm assuming that was your focus point), but that could be easily fixed in post..

    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:
     
  8. Charles, beautiful...just beautiful.

    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.
     
  11. I like the 2nd shot, I just with there was no shadow over her right eye. Composition and facial expression are much better on #2 IMO.
     
  12. 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,
     
  13. 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!

    Great capture, looks nice even though I am not a fan of wide open head shots.
