My niece Brooke, playing in the lake this past weekend! We had a great time, it was HOT during the day, but really nice in the mornings and evenings.

I remember playing in this lake when I was a teenager and today I would not step one TOE in it! haha!.... there are GATORS!....but we didn't know that then.....She was close in, people watching etc...and usually gators won't go into high traffic areas... but still...I'm not getting into that water!

Hallo Linda
Vara este in forma si la voi!
Frumoasa imagine!
Numai bine

A brave girl but children have a different priority in mind that water does look fun and on a hot day very inviting
A great action shot and her face says it all the pure enjoyment very nicely captured

Hello Linda,
Fantastic photo, full of joy. Funny scene.

Nice seeing all the droplets flying around, the fun splashes from my screen!

Yes, summer fun indeed and nice capture of the water. Great pov and it has a good dof with sharp details. Awesome colors. Well done, tfs.

Wow Linda, what a great capture of the waterdrops ! Superb colors and very 'fresh'.
She will be very happy with this photo when she is grown up.

Hi Linda,I did write a critique,but must have forgotten to send it,senior moment?
Anyway ,I thought this was a great capture of your neice enjoing the water. One can tell she's enjoying playing in the water,by the way you have captured the joyful expression on her face.I liked how you also captured the details & texture of her wet redish locks,espescially when she is in motion. Good natural colors & I like the splashed water with its sharp clear droplets, you can see how they were created by the position of the arms.A strong composition.

Um abraço
