Great soft shot! I love the look on the girls face :) Great capture. Lighting is well done. Did you use any extra lighting or was this just available light? Very nice "candid" shot :)

Thanks for all the comments. This is a photo of my daughter and grand-daughter at a lunch we had not long ago. We were sitting outdoors on the restaurant verandah. The blue blur in the top left is a car, the background was a mess so I lightened it. I tried to clone out the straw, but I didn't like my efforts and I left it in. I'd had a bit of wine and there was a lot of family commotion going on so this pic was a pleasant surprise. One day I might be able to think of shutter-speeds, apertures and have a drink all at the same time! Thanks again.

The soft glow and feel of your photograph is excellent. The moment captured with daugther and mother is priceless.

The lighting is well done in the foreground, however the lighting in the background seems a bit bright. Just the same is adds glow to the entire scene. The colors and tone give it a warm and comfortable feel. I can almost see this photo in a magazine advertisment.

The shutter speed might have been increased to avoid the blurred affect on the hands and lipstick. Since this is the focus of the image, the eye is drawn to the moving elements. Also distracting is the blue image on the upper left corner of the image. Could have been light bounce of the girl's ribbon. Only guessing.

What also is well done is the "Candid" moment captured. I am sure that as we all know with a child subject, you get only so many chances.

Great submission for the People II challenge, good luck in your future contests.

Outstanding exposure and great job capturing the moment!

Good job of backlighting. Must have used some fill light to get the even tones in front also. Slight motion to the Moms (?) arm creates realism (non-posed) with this image. Nice.

Awww... such an adorable little girl. I love the softness of this, and the brightness; I like that pink and white make up the majority of the photo, aside from the subjects' faces. There are only two distractions that I see - the blue bit in the upper right, and the slight movement of the lipstick-holding hand. I would love to see this with that blue part desaturated and lightened a bit. Regardless though, this is a very cute capture that is well framed - I like the closeness in this case. Lovely photograph.

What a sweet picture. It is so cute to see the looks little girls get on their faces with lipstick - you can just tell they watch Mom or big sister putting on lipstick and imitate that look.

Other than the straw (which pleasantly, is pink anyway) this is absolutely gorgeous.. The skin is so pretty! Great shot!

Very nice picture! It would even be better in my opinion if you had not cut in two the face of the girl on the right.

A nice moment between mom and daughter. The colors and white balance are done nicely. Unfortunately there is no crop you could have done to remove the straw and keep the overall feel of the shot.
