An adorable portrait, though a bit washed out around the girl's nose.

Too bad about the blown out area on the left of her face. Otherwise it would have scored higher.

Why do I love this photo? The hair is wild , the smile is mischievious, and the eyes exude nothing but share exilaration. It is the rare picture like this that makes the other 1000 clicks worthwhile. A wonderful moment captured brilliantly, great job.

Looks like a darned fine hair day to me! I see no complaints ... :)

Excellent capture! She looks like she is having SO much fun! My only beef with this image is that it is slightly overexposed. The DOF and nice nondescript background make this photo work so well. Oh heck! This is a happy picture and happy pictures have lots of light. A 10.

If this is actually your child, I can't imagine that you haven't taken thousands of pictures of such a cutey before, but I'm happy to give some benefit of the doubt for such a stunning photo. I've tried many times to take swingset pictures of my daughters and this one is better than any I've ever taken. Great shot!

Bad Hair Day? I think "Do it again Daddy!" would be more appropriate. Really charming pic of the little gil.

Great catch man! So full of live and happines! Wasnt it great back in those days :D Only thing I see is the bright spot on her face and the cropping on the bottom would like to see mabey a bit space under her shoes, But it doesnt ruin the whole picture, its full of emotions its great!

Great use of DOF, but it is a shame the left side of her face and shirt are blown out.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/13/2004 10:48:47 PM

light on the face is little too strong

what a cutie! This is one for the scrapbook!!!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/12/2004 02:44:35 PM
Wow! A touch overexposed on the left cheek, but it's apparent that this isn't a studio shot so you weren't in control of the lighting. Composed nicely, and of course the expression is priceless. This is truly great photography - 8!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/12/2004 12:54:33 PM
This is great! I love her expression!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/12/2004 11:38:57 AM
Seriously, you've never taken pictures of this kid before? It's a great shot, she shows the joy of youth and its simple pleasures. I guess in a few years, she'll probably quit enjoying activities that mess up her hair, but for now she's obviously happy with life.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/12/2004 11:29:26 AM
What a fun shot! It's full of energy and action and certainly a different perspective. The only obvious negative is the highlight on the left side of her face and shoulder that is a little blown and so a little distracting. But the energy of the shot really wins out.

Nice capture, good composition, cute girl. The only down is the overbright right side of her face.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/11/2004 10:45:48 AM
Great expression on her face! Nothing distracting in the background -- beautiful

  Photographer found comment helpful.

Lovely photograph of a beautiful little girl! Focus is perfect, and you caught this at just the right time to see her hair flying out and such a great smile on her face!
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Great shot.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/10/2004 10:17:24 PM

  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/10/2004 08:28:33 PM
Great capture! I wish her eyes had been in focus though...did you apply this blur on PS?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/10/2004 05:29:47 PM
A little bright on her right cheek, but a fabulous idea, well done with the hair flying and DOF shallow and the chains framing it so well! 8

More like great hair day, love it
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/10/2004 04:40:24 PM
Sweet composition of this pretty little girl. Good depth of field to keep that background blurred. Maybe a little 'hot' on the sweater? Overall, really, really nice.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/10/2004 03:23:12 PM
what a pretty little girl, love the picture, the left side of her face looks a little hot though due to the suny day
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/10/2004 11:06:43 AM
a tad more contrast, I think. She's a cuttie though
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/10/2004 10:13:47 AM
I love this! What a great capture. If this is your daughter then you have taken a shot of a lifetime. I wish I could give it higher then a 10. 10
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/10/2004 08:44:34 AM
A good one. Pity about the washed-out part on the left-hand side of the face. Perhaps you can correct that eventually. 7

Nice

An excellent job capturing the action of the moment!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/10/2004 02:49:20 AM
If only the lighting was better, great other than that. Her right cheek is washed out. Great smile.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/10/2004 02:42:26 AM
Very nice stop motion, unfortunately blown highlights, maybe a -1 stop compensation would have helped.
