I like the noise, softness and all the other things that went wrong to make the effect.

I agree. It just goes to show that in order for a photo to have interest it doesn't always have to be spot on in the traditional sense.

i like it too. the 'oil painting' effect and the subdued lighting all make it a very appealing photo. her expression is perfect for the image... a bright cheery smile would have looked completely out of place, but her wistful expression is perfect, and gives a sense of longing, almost sadness, to the picture which suits the lighting well. whatever you did wrong, it came out pretty darn good.

Wondeful shot! Is this straight from the camera? Whatever you did wrong, you did it right. I would love to duplicate it. Exif?

Thank you all. Pappy and fmoore, the exif must be getting lost in exporting the file from Picasa2 to "My Pictures," as it is on my Blogger Blog when uploaded through Blogger Bot, Hello directly from Picasa. ??? I'd hoped you'd be able to see it. Anyway. FZ-20, iso 400 (some were 80), 1/4 sec., f2.8, std. effect setting for saturation and all that, shutter, spot, cloudy, tripod, 2 sec. delay. I saw it in my mind a day or two prior; but, I had to wait for a big girl to go back to her lttle girl's swing. The sun was well below the horizon. I saw her out there. I ran out in my jammies with my camera and tripod in hand. I took several shots before she noticed me. 72mm i.e. full 12x zoom. Telephoto, long exposure and low light tends to give the effects you see. Cropping and adding light with Picasa as done here finishes it.
