This is my almost 11 year-old niece (she's 5'5" and looks like she's 17) who had opened all of her Christmas presents... so she thought. Her parents bought her a cell phone for Christmas, but had saved it for the last present. So a few minutes later, she was ecstatic. I thought she was going to cry, she was so happy.

I really liked how this shot turned out.

Nice idea to this with good use of the rule of thirds. The background is a bit complex for me, it takes away from your main subject.

although this is a technically good photo, i find it boring to look at, perhaps because the models expression is that of bordum and not of dreaming
