My little girl drawing with chalk. I just loved how this one came out. I think the cartoon/artsy effect makes it more child like and fun.

Keywords: artsy, polka dot, pink, chalk, sidewalk, sidewalk chalk, pony tails, toddler,

Entered: 7/14/2010
and featured in the DD news letter #88 and now it's my FIRST FINALIST EVER!!!! I am so so so excited :D

The fact that you've shot her from the back made this really interesting to me. You can't see exactly what she's doing, but it obvious that's she fascinated with her activity (and makes you wonder what it is that she is doing!)

I'm glad you told us, but the viewer doesn't actually have to know that info in order to get caught in the moment. And the filter you selected is perfect for the scene.

I am touched by this image, too, Awdrey... I think I like her extended leg and toesies, and of courses her piggy tails... so cute! Congratulations on being featured in the Digital Darkroom!
