    Caught her pondering about things, I liked the way she looked, so I grabbed the camera and took a pic. What do you think?

    I think you nailed it spot on. Years ago (24) I took a similar one of my little sister handheld with a 1/4/ second exposure. Came out sharp as a tack. Ah, the joys of youth! What were you shooting and what settings?

    i think this is a really lovely spur-of-the-moment portrait. I think you have room on the left to crop out the glass of milk and make it even better! :D

    Thanks! :mrgreen:

    I tought about cropping the glass, but felt like her left arm was going to be cut off too much, but I'll take a look again and see if the crop makes her stand out a little bit more. (Feel free to edit!)

    This pic was taken with a cheap Sony DSC-P32. I used F2.8@1/15 on ASA400. I have a couple more on film from that day after she realized I was taking pictures of her, but this one was the first and her expression was very natural.
