Melissa- Now this is what I am talking about girl. Natural, not posed, reality portrait. Right into my favorites. First of all the finish and clarity is fantastic. Love that black and white a whole bunch. The fact that they all have the same head bands with the flowers is a sweet touch. The little chick is so cute. But what really takes this picture over the top is the wonderful expressions you have gotten from each girl. You can not duplicate this beauty doing studio work. This is pure people being people.
Have a wonderful Friday my dear friend, enjoy the weekend.

G'day MELISSA!

What a lovely casual portrait this trio makes.
This shot has been set up beautifully and its impact is in the very interesting and amusing interplay of characters, (even the chickens) as well as your excellent B&W skills.
Very nicely exposed and so clear, clean and crisp.
It is a delight to be an observer of this marvellous moment.
