In her hands....

By Sampics
My 7 year old daughter.
Taken at 10:20 lastnight.
I'd had the idea for a few days but was waiting for the weekend so i could keep her awake. ( I know...naughty mother! lol)
Found it a difficult shot, she was stood on a garden bench stretching and i was led on the ground. After a good few attempts she was complaining of a bad neck, so had to give up. She was so good though, and wanted the photo to turn out good, just as much as i did.
The shot could of been better, i wanted her a bit more side on really, and of course, would of preferred a full moon lol, but i love the image as a whole, hope you like it to !
I havent done anything to the photo other than framed it.
Any comments most appreciated as always.

lovely idea,,, I think it would have worked even better had the moon been " cupped " in her hands, and yes, I agree a full moon would have looked awesome... That aside it's still a superb capture...

I reckon you can never start too early reaching for the moon! Really sweet capture and I bet one for the family album. Well done to her for agreeing to be your model and suffering for it too!!
