another lovely shot.But here I have an suggestion.
Here is the perspective of an adult to a child.I mean you were in standing with cam. down.Nothing wrong in that.
But I prefer to see the world through the child eye. i.e I will bent on my knee and take a eye level shot. I feel you will get certain advantage in "this perspect". At least the branch and the stems will move down which now looks like projecting out of the head.
Hope you take this on the right spirit. Thanks for sharing

Sorry , I need to correct myself. On the second look I feel I will move the baby little bit more toward right ( of the viewer) so branch will be little less visible. Thanks

Gilbill,

You captured her heart and soul. Good work. Mcliu's suggestion re:bringing the camera down to her level is a valid one but at times hard to execute given the milliseconds you have to take the photo.

Aloha

mcliu, Tullio and Selvin,

Again thank you for looking and for the kind words. This picture was taken on the spur of the moment as she looked back at me on our hike. So I did not have a lot of time to position her or kneel down to her level. I agree, I prefer pictures of children at their level but sometimes you just don't have the time. This picture, to me, is a very good representation of my daughter. Carefree, sweet and having fun.
