BetterPhoto.com Photo Contest SECOND PLACE Winner

Twins

I was sitting on the bench, watching the fish and a documentary, about the kelp forest. A toddler ran into the scene and climbed up on the ledge, supported by her Mom. A few minutes later, a little girl enters the scene, the toddler starts crawling towards her Mom and sister. I wanted to show the young girls alone, it required 2 exposures.

I wish I could have captured all of this with one click of the shutter. But the fish and girls moved so fast. This is a combination of 5 exposures. The girls were captured 2 seconds apart. I inserted some of the fish, by copying and pasting.
