This was one of many images I shot in a Fijian village where children sold shells and curio to support their families. I shot this using a 50mm 1.8 lens and am happy with the final result. I wanted to leave it as simple as it could be so I basically only USM'd and cropped. Some levels adjustment. I had the wider crop but thought the square crop would really highlight the face of this child...and I say child, cause I 'think' it was a little girl, and not a boy.

I think it has a very Lesley Goodman look...and I LOVE Lesley's work.


POST: 6.11XX... I guess that's OK. I had a higher expectation, but it was a tough challenge with some amazing images.

the sun light on the top of his head is a little distracting but cute kid
