You have a good balance with a tension as the hand steadies the basket, as she stops to see us.

This, for sure, is a girl for marrying, not just taking pictures! Find a person like this and never look back. That's how much I like your picture.

Hi Graham,

A beauty indeed. Great pose, and the fill light is just enough to suggest a morning or evening light.

Cheers,
Bart

Graham,

Whoever has this lady as a daughter must be proud! I have had the fortune of having 3 sons, but missed having daughters! Luckily, son's do find their mates and then one gets daughters-in law and that's a treat! These are the built in continued blessings of family. So when I see a photograph like this, that's what I think of and all the hard work and devotion that it takes to prepare a young person for a future that's unknown to us. So really all we have is good intent and hope! When we can look at a child growing up right it's a blessing not to be ever underrated or taken for granted.

Asher

Hi,

Wonderful shot : colors, lights, pose... are perfect.
Bokeh is a bit harsh (due to bright light through the sleeves i presume) but finally it fits model's expression !

Regards,

Cedric.

You have a point there. I will see if I can soften it in post.

Ok, bokeh now softened just around the top parts which were the worst.
