She actually had alot of fun with this photoshoot. It started pouring while we were out, so instead of taking covering, I thought what a great opportunity for a photoshoot. Afterwards my daughter told me "That was so fun, mom."

Thanks for all the great comments and a first time 7.0+ in a freestudy.

Jennifer, of all your stunning photos this has got to be my favourite. When I was going through the images during voting it caught my eye straight away and I was sure it would win. It's really excellent, you are so darn good and it's such a pleasure seeing your work.

Oh Jennifer! Your magic continues! This is AMAZING! And the coolest part is not that you got an honorable mention, 7+ score in a free study, but that you and your daughter will treasure that memory forever, and have it documented so beautifully to remind you!

"Please sir, I've lost my way, can you help me?"

His usual revulsion at these street urchins began to rise, but for some reason he was able to overcome it this time. With a slight scowl, he nodded and asked if where she lived, if anywhere. She mentioned a street, one that he recognized, and so for whatever reason, he decided to lead her there. As they went, she babbled on about this and that. At first, he simply nodded, but as they went her voice seemed to work on him somehow. He found himself answering, in brief at first, but then at length. By the time they arrived at their destination, he had found himself even starting certain small conversations. It astounded him.

As they turned on her street, a woman came running up, crying and grabbing her daughter. She showered her with hugs and kisses, and then turned to the man, thanking him profusely for bringing her home. At an invite for dinner, he found himself unable to say no, and was welcomed into their small and comfortable, if very rag-tag and poor, home.

It was the beginning of a life-long friendship, started because of the momentary decision to turn away from instinct and do what was right.

For all the rest of his life he remembered the face in the rain, and he was never an unkind man again.


This is fabulous!! I LOVE it!!!


GEEZ!! You not only got tagged by K10Dguy - you were slammed. This is fantastic!! LOVE IT!! Perfection with the perfect image!

This caught my eye in the thumbs. I'm psyched this is yours Jenn. It's awesome. Has a 1920s feel to it.

Ha! Love the contrast of the title's meaning with the actual processing. Glad to hear you had fun together, too. Congrats!

Very appealing shot, and I like how there's this slight smile playing at the edges of her expression, as if she's not minding the downpour all that much. Bumping to 10.

I've viewed this one several times now. It is incredibly captivating and timeless. I've been trying to decide if I like the editing, but apparently I do, because I keep coming back to it. 10

I think the expression on the face is perfect. I like the pp on this too.

great pic

This is a fantastic illustration of how a large amount of pp can be amazing. I doubt many would think this is straight from the camera, and their are times when I like that look. This however utilizes pp to its best. Wonderfully done and on my first page.

Love the title (perfect for DPC). If only that didn't look like a giant glob of snot...
Other than that, this conjures up feelings of Dickens and Renoir.
