Hawgwild,

She was upset because her brother would not move out of the shot she wanted to capture. Our house rule is, no beating each other up.:G

Calicajun, the title of your post is perfect. It ads so much dimension to the excellent capture of your daughter. Cheers, Dan

Dan,

Thanks for the comments. I always hated put titles on my pictures something college professors use to fuss after me for not doing. Guess my old teachers are finally gettingme to see things their way.:G

Geometrical arrangement in the composition as well as the point of view to the subject from a bit abovewith its peculiar perspective appealed to me in this capture. The background could be blurred a little, imo. Well done Craig

Tjsnaps, thanks for the comment, kids are pretty much the same everywhere but just don't tell them that fact.



Bahadir,

Blurring the background sounds like a good idea, will try that this weekend. I also noticed that the picture is tilted (flag pole leaning), wonder if straightening the picture would help or not, something else to try this weekend.

Tried blurring the background and straightening the picture. The straightening is easy but blurring the background is going to take some more practice.
