Eternal Youth

Uploaded: December 13, 2004


Picture of an 84 year old lady playing with a barbie. I saw this and had to catch the moment. It was taken about a month ago about 6pm with available light. She was sitting in the balcony. 28-200 sigma lens.

Good idea, nice picture. For a next time, try to include more of the old lady's hand, at least from the wrist up. Also, if possible, try to get some side lighting to those hands to bring out the texture. Keep up the good work. #971086

You have a meaninful image here. I second Miguel's advice and I am wondering how a shot with the whole extended palm (horizontally) holding the Barbie would look. Just an idea...What do you think?

Thank you for the advice. Tomorrow I will send a picture I took the same day , this one has the whole palm. It took me a while to decide which one to send to the contest. Thank you again,
