Thank you! I am brand new to photography, been shooting in manual for all of 8 weeks. I have gorgeous kids, so it's easy to get some pretty fun shots :o) #10318976

It was one of those perfect moments when the stars aligned and for the most part my fumbling fingers pulled it off perfectly. It's a great shot and captures her personality so well. Thank you for your kind comments. For every good shot I get, it seems I have 900 that aren't so much. Practice, right? #10321234
