This four year old girl was wandering in my neighborhood late in the evening when I met her and asked where she was going and who was looking after her. She named some boys and pointed towards the playing ground where we could not see anyone. Then she said she was going home. I said I would like to find the boys but first if it was OK to take a photo. She nodded. Then we walked for awhile till we found two boys almost her age, one maybe eight, that was her brother. Apparently her family was visiting friends in a nearby house.

Worked with the raw file in Lightrooms, tone and color adjustments, black and resized, exporting to PS for levels, curves, hue/saturation, little dodge/burn, sharpening, framing and rezising. Saved for the Web in the end.

Aw, I wish she didn't look so worried - it just makes me a little sad for her. I absolutely adore the colors and the composition.
