Oh I don't know which I prefer - such a strong portrait both work well for me. I just perhaps would not have cropped the top of his head off - shame people LIKE their heads!
I am surprised no one has commented on the foreshortening making her seem rather cartoon / caricature - like with a large head and small body. The harsh shadow/light combination also detracts from the rather delightful expression on her face. I would have gotten down on her level to take this photo which would have eliminated the foreshortening / perspective problem and just got her to turn her head slightly out of the direct sun (or shaded her face slightly) but as you say it is such a delightlful expression. One for the family album of treasured memories isn't it?
Really interesting reflection. Pity in a way about the cloud behind the building as I think that distracts from what would have been a very moody and otherworldly reflection in the pond. I like the composition as the pond is nicely framed by the dark bits (grass and whatnot) around the edge.
LOL ok .. NOT what I expected for the title and gallery category. Good photo .. just not sure I agree with sentiment ... I thought it was going to be a far more edgy comment on the falseness of the body image stereotype forced on women by 'Barbie' and other fashion images in the media.
LOL yes but DESPITE the missing wingtip still a fantastic shot - may I suggest a 'solution' - crop the other wingtip off as well - surprising how well that works to make it 'intentional' and balances the image back out again and fools the eye into thinking you didn't make a 'oops'.
May I point out that these are Gerbera Daisies and YES they are indeed lovely.
