[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
On a very warm and sunny day in Scotland, a little girl sits in the shade of a tree. Not much else to say, really, but I liked her position and the bright colours of her clothes.

Shot at 200mm in RAW and converted and edited in PSE6.

hello John,
you have captured the little girl's colourful clothing perfectly. Nice dof. I like the obvious things about this, the way she sits and the colour co-ordintion of flipflops, top and hat. her mother obviously has an eye for style.It is a pity that this had to be a shot of the b ack of her. Faces are aleays important when photographing people, especially children. But I'm sure you know this but couldn't resist the bright colours -that must be the child in you ;))

Hi John
Well captured shot very colourfull, the dof falls of very sharply and this helps make the kid stand out. As am aside I wonder if there is a picture just of the design on her trousers. The fact that we don't see her face leaves us wondering what she is watching
Well done
