Here is another picture from the Bluebonnet shoot. Can't make her smile on cue but running around is just fine :wink:

I wish she filled up the frame a bit more and it seems a little underexposed but the colors are nice and the image is cohesive enough to be satisfying. Nice.

I think that the subjects size relation to the rest of the image works well - it just means that you'll have to print it at 20x30. And I love the depth of field. I agree that you may want to bump up the light and perhaps saturation. You may also wish to consider a crop that removes the sky above the trees.

There is almost a natural line across the top of the foto that still leaves a V w/sky. Cropping the foto there might look great ...already a great foto though!

I agree on the comments about a tighter shot - having the girl between the dark green and the blue without the sky would be fantastic. The colors are terrific and her playfulness really makes the shot.

I think its wonderful. The idea seems to be a child in a vast field of flowers. I can't see how a tighter crop would help that. In fact it would ruin it. In this shot, the OOf forground>in focus child>OOF background leads one into the girl while painting a softly moving perspective front to back. Nice. I wouldn't crop it at all, she's positioned wonderfully within the comp.

Only critique I'd make would be to start posting these bigger here, 600x800 for verticals is a good size, 800x600 for horizontals. You can go up to 900 pixels in width without having the site SW resize down.

Thanks to all of you for your feedback. I think now I have to bump the brightness and saturation just a little bit - maybe crop some of the sky.
