What a beautiful day and child. Great job of capturing the peace and relaxation. the wheelbarrow is the hammock of the orchard.

Thank you for all the nice comments!

I am thinking in the fall it would be a nice shot to have the wheelbarrel piled high with apples and have her pushing it!

Awesome photo Kelly! Well done.

Question: how did you achieve the blue amongst the sepia tones? I know of a way in Photoshop in which you create a second layer of the image, make it black and white (or sepia, whatever) and then erase the second layer in sections to reveal the colour below, but this often leaves edges undefined and messy...and your lines aren't!

Thanks for your help.

Tom,

Thanks for your kind comments.

I create a top layer in SEPIA and then erased the "pants" to reveal the bottom layer and desaturated it.
