    Bernie, backlighting was by chance...this was fully candid, a passing moment where she stuck out her tongue when I raised the camera. She's a fun kid!

I do wish this one had as much critique as my Open entry which clearly pushed the limits. I find child portraits a real challenge to get right and candid ones rather than posed all the more so. Lots passed this one by yet few said why. I find that the most disappointing part of these Challenges which is why I try to comment on every entry, noting what I like and what I don't though clearly some are very sensitive to the don't parts! I learn more a lot more from the criticism than I do from the praise.

    Had this one in my top 10 (along with 8 other members). Too bad Neat did not critique this one, but several others did! Was the backlighting on the hat on purpose, or a happy accident?

    aoc I would be interested to see what playing with white balance would do. This was pretty much SOOC. As to the edge, I know it is a personal choice but I always preferred portrait without the subject exactly dead center (I always feel like they're "trapped" or confined otherwise) though frankly, other than the hat being crunched on one side, she pretty much is dead centre and filling the frame.

Amberbug I thought about the right side lit bushes too but didn't want to make the image too dark and since she really was posing (candid but still) I didn't want to formalize this one too much. Glad you noticed the lighting on the hat.

Old Finn She's a fun kid.

Lo It's the having fun being a kid part that I liked about this the most!

    Cute kid - might prefer a bit warmer white balance, square crop (the edge areas don't add much).

    Beautiful child, have seen those tongues with my grandchildren. Good use of back lighting on the hat, would have tried to darken the right side bushes or cropped a little. Good exposure etc.

    The lighting in this photograph is superb. The girl's eyes and skin remind me of a porcelain doll, but she's so much more beautiful sticking out her tongue and having fun.

    jomari Thanks. I thought about leaving the explanation out but in some circles, a tongue out is rude, so I thought I should put it in just in case!

ysal Yep, kids are kids everywhere!

    The picture tells the story even without your notes. Lovely, fun portrait. In my faves.

    Ah yes, the dreaded red tongue. I have so many shot of my son doing the same.
