A Simple Exultation
Lens: DA 35 Limited Camera: K20D Photo Location: Our House ISO: 400 Shutter Speed: 1/60s Aperture: F4 
Posted By: Sailor, 02-13-2011, 08:08 PM

Our six-year-old granddaughter, Claire, spent last night with us and following her morning bath, I grabbed this shot of her exulting in the feel of the warm, "electric" air as my wife dried her hair. This child enjoys life so much, and it's a pleasure to capture that enjoyment when I can.

Sharp, detailed and a natural pose. Black and White adds to the effect. There's a lot to like here.

Nicely done! Nicely composed and rendered. It looks like there is some combination lighting going on, and it is effective.

Appreciate it, BigDave. Yeah, the bathroom light over a mirror was coupled with some sunlight through the window.
