Challenge: Decorate Baby Emilie's Nursery (Expert Editing)
Camera: Nikon D7100
Lens: Nikon AF-S Nikkor 50mm f/1.4G
Date: Oct 5, 2014
Aperture: 5.6
ISO: 125
Shutter: 1/250

So much for expert editing. I tried a few expert moves - I had a fun Lego duck boat that I thought would be cool in the background. But I just couldn't get the layers to work in time. (And the wind prevented everything from being in one shot.)

I don't even want to talk about the darn star fish. (I was also shooting Lego shots for my sister, so it was towards the end of the day when I was working with the mermaid. I can't believe I had the starfish backwards. Grrrr.)

But welcome to the world, dear Emilie. May stories of magic and mystery bring you lots of joy.

Cute. Maybe a tad much background in comparison to the main subject.

Oh yeeees. Lego. I am so going to buy trucks of Legos. My favorite game ever, and now I have a great excuse to play it again ;-) Moreover, who can resist mermaids' songs! Thank you so much for your wonderful entry :)

Nicely done environmental portrait (or could it be called a macro portrait?)

I'm not a fan of shots of toys, although it could work for a baby. However, in my opinion, the tree in the background makes it too difficult to focus on the subject.
