Little Miss is just desperate to jump in the enormous puddle behind her. I love her expression. The perfect combination of cute and cheeky.

I wanted to catch her expression but also the winter sun coming through the trees. I would be interested to hear your thoughts. Particularly on the composition. I played with a few crops before this.

Thanks

I don't particularly have a problem with the crop,the little girl is well placed on the LHS third but...the RHS of the image looks a little odd,very blurred with a strange patch of yellow,which I find detracts from the main subject.
As the puddle is behind her ( I think I can just see it) maybe a portrait crop would be in order as the RHS is not adding anything to the image.
The strong sunlight has caused a touch of over exposure on the ground,maybe this could be remedied in your editing program by slightly adjusting the highlight levels.The other option of course would be to set a faster shutter speed,taking care not to under expose the child.
A difficult light condition which,to be honest I would have avoided & taken the image in light a little less harsh.
A good moment captured though & I like her expression.

Nice image. very cute. The Sun is low, and a little harsh, so perhaps a little less sharpening, or less contrast. You can only really deal with the harshness in post processing. I would crop the right, and end up with a 10 X 8 aspect ratio.


So the mod is cropped, slightly softer, with a touch less saturation.

Nice shot,


regards


Willie
