[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
ISO 800 STOP!...before you have a cow and go all crazy on me... this was an EXPERIMENT. I wanted to do some shots of the grandkids, great grandkids and GREAT GREAT grandkids of my Aunt Evelyn this past Easter.
I wanted EASTER colors.... soft pastels, so I upped the ISO to 800, and shot it at extreme OE, to wash out colors and add some "artistic" value to the shots. I love how they came out.... So what do you think?

No doubt I will have crossed the line of photographic decency, but every so often I like to throw myself under the bus and do something different...

Hi Linda

A superb daily life shot of the small girl taking her first tentative steps. I would increase density using levels. I could do a workshop if you want. Might take of to Suzhou tomorrow if the fine weather holds. Back on Sunday.

Wonderful moment. Well captured Linda ! Julie

To me, your experiment worked well and you could manage to show the true mood of Easter festive feelings, Linda B-)
I like the cute kid having fun and her relatives concentrating on her moves having in their mind some sort of questions like - What she will do next?!
Good control on light and well shown mood in the picture in addition to lovely colors.

Just a small observation from my side - The slipper/sandal on the left border of the picture could be cropped out :)

Best regards,
