This is Water & Norman in the garden grass with my wife, Andrea. It was just a quick 10-15 minute shoot before she had to leave.

Neat image, but I'm drawn more to the flower than to the puppets. I think it not only competes, but wins for attention. Focus on the puppets is off a little while the flowers focus is spot on making the flower even more the center of attention.

Just my opinion! :)

The background bokeh is very very pretty, but I wish there was a little more light of the puppets.

This reminds me of Baby Einstein educational movies.
Nice bokeh, the lighting could be better though.

How fun! I love the depth of field and the soft contrasting background. I love the action captured in the shot. I wish the flower-holding puppet would have caught just a tad more light or been just a fraction higher in the frame and the left side didn't get quite as dark, but this is such a happy fun shot! I love it!

The only thing I can see doing different would be to try and crop more "arm" and see more "puppet".
Well done!
