A beautiful carefree moment! It captures all the innocence and freedom of youth, waltzing through a wide & open field with a lovely breeze to cool the warm summer day.

A well deserved finish for a delightful photo.

I love the way the strands (and colour) of her hair mimic the shape and colour of the grass.

Awesome... this was done while I was away and completely missed it! It's gorgeous as is, but if you'd had her face the other way (I know how difficult that can be with children) you'd have had the blue with this one!

THIS is SOOO beautiful!! the hair and tall grass and soft sepia coloring almost black and white tone to it is just....amazing! it shows innocence and exploration and the wind and is a great rule of 3rds (as well as having that horizon line so beautifully centered! -- the border is great; the stray hair on the back of her head might have been better off cloned but I don't think that is legal in advanced editing(?) no doubt about it tho this is a 10 from me :-) great capture! :-)
