Happy New Year

By novocastria
This is an unusual shot for but I couldn't resist it. It was taken in Soho at the Chinese New Year celebrations. I was stood on a wrought fence trying to get a shot over the crowd, looked down and there she was!

I don't really do people shots, so any advice/comments/criticisms are more than welcome.

A lovely shot, very charming. I think a tight crop might loose some of the perspective. Click

Super image, I feel it would be even better with the child by itself, but thats just my view. Well captured John

Thanks John. I have a tight crop of this shot, but the child looks a little wierd without any context, so I went for the wider image.
