You've captured that wonderful gentleness she has towards them .. that left hand (her right) with the thumb just up a little - you can TELL she's holding them gently .. the angle of her head .. what a beautiful photograph.

Yes this is a classic. Technically, a touch of fill-in flash would have helped, but I still really like the emotion you've captured.

It is an enchanting photograph. There is such an obvious bond between the little girl and the duck on the left.

this is the first time I have seen your portfolio and this one is simply superb, you got the gradiated tones on the wall behind the girl, and the tonal range on the girl and the ducks is spot on. this is a very respectable black and white effort, love it to bits Grin

Edite I keep coming back to this. It's just so very beautiful. Would you let me buy an A3 print of this? - I would love to have a copy on my wall. If you could email me (my email is in my portfolio) perhaps we could arrange something and I can sort out the exchange rate at this end ..
