Megan in the leaves. Many of you will recognize this, but I really do think it's probably my best, (or one of my best) of 2004. A close tie with "Sleep Circle", which you might remember as well.. (check my portfolio under B&W shots to see it).

This is a really cute photo :) I like the crop and composition, but on my monitor it looks slightly washed out - the blacks are a grey and not black. A slight levels adjustment would definately make this photo worth a point higher minimum as it would improve the overall clarity.

One of my top picks because of it's vibrant colors, excellent composition, beautiful textures, and Megan's winning smile. Well done. :o)

Great expression, great color, great fun. This is one time I wish the subject wasn't so much on the 1/3 line or perfectly vertical -- it makes it "look" a bit posed even though it feels very spontaneous otherwise.

Great composition, beautiful colors. The eyes lok a little oversharpened.

This is the ultimate childhood portrait. The look of joy on her face is simply amazing. You can clearly see that not only is the child having a blast, but she really loves the person that she is with. That's a rare and precious gift. This is one you should really have on your wall. Her parents should also have one on the wall. :) Simply spectacular shot, and I think truly one of your best. 10

I've had to come back and study this shot a few times to really appreciate it.
The composition and detail are good, and a photograph sure to make a parent beam looking at it ((8))

Very cute image...A bit of a light cast that has "clouded" the image a bit. Some minor adjustments (light cast and enrich the colours of the leaves) would have appealed to me. Good luck.

Cute kid! :) Nice composition making the title of your photo balanced. Cute kid = Delight, brown/orange leaves = autumn. Balanced ay? :)

while i find this an unique portrait, there is something that feels a bit artificial to me. i just can't quite put my finger on it, but it just doesn't feel natural. good luck with the rest of the voters, 5 is the best i can do here.

Cute kid, nice image, seems a little hazy for some reason - have you brightened it a lot or something ? 7.

Adorable! I love the contrast between the clothing and the leaves. I also love the baby's expression. Great capture!

Beautiful image with lovely use of leaves both as background and toy! Lovely expression of happiness and nice catchlight in the eye. A lovely portrait. 7

Very cute shot! The baby seems soft...maybe Neat Image'd? I wish the baby's face, especially the eyes, were sharper.

Very nice indeed, lovely colouring and composition

AWESOME picture!!! The more I look at it, the more I love it. The baby's smile, and the way he (or it's hard to tell -- it may be a she -- sorry) instinctively picks up the leaves to hold.

I love the subject of this image, but it is too soft for my taste, I would like to see the colors more vibrant and the photo sharper, but that is just my opinion.

Very nice the expersion on the babys face. Seems like his having a lot of fun.
Great moment.

Superb work. I think this works perfectly in the sqare format and the colours harmonize.

Thisimage is essentially flawless in my eyes. Even the square crop, which usually I don't find effectively used, is perfect here.
