Thank You

By podgod
Like 'Kiss' (see my portfolio) this shot, while not technically perfect does show a perfect moment in time. Whilst part of a large military group visiting an orphanage in Bosnia to distribute Christmas presents I was watching the children when this girl caught my eye from across the room. As I lifted the camera to my eye she blew me a kiss. This one moment made up for the fact that I had missed Christmas with my family and at the time was feeling a little bit down, at least a few weeks later I was at home with my wife and daughter.

Im afraid this picture does nothing for me, it is a so what picture. However I think the story behind it is probably far more interesting, and probably by putting this picture up you are thinking more of the story rather than of the quality of the picture.

Was wondering if you could go to Photoshop and desaturate the whole photo to B/W and just leave her in color. That could bring the attention to her more closely and convey that 'thank you'. =)
