Here is the second one....I set this apeture at 2.8 also and zoomed again 3.3 with iso 100. She was really a happy child.

A large talent has made itself apparent in the pictures you have posted so far and that is that you have an extraordinary ability to take wonderful pictures of children:!:All are standouts.

Beautiful child and even more beautiful shots. My only question is - why did you have to crop so close?

Thanks for the encouragement. I do enjoy photgraphing children.....I had four children of my own and took so many bad pictures as they were growing up...lol....Raghu, I really like tight cropping on a childs face as the entire story is told in the childs expression. I think that these type of pictures can reveal a child's heart and soul. This little girl was really enjoying herself eating animal crackers, laughing with her mama and mama's friend, and watching the children around her. I've enclosed another picture to show you another story......You can see her wheels turning as she watches the children....If I hadn't cropped in that close I may have missed it. I know I'm just a newbie, but that's how I saw it.Thanks for all thecomments, I appreciate honesty...you all are really helping me on this journey. bentleysmom

Great photos. Very expressive. I like the tight crop on these. Focus and exposure are excellent. I'll bet the mother would love to have copies.

I really enjoyed the father and son picture you posted too. I've been having trouble posting so couldn't reply earlier. Nice work!
