    Ansco Titan w/ 90mm anastigmat
    HP5+ (rated at ISO 200) in Sprint 1:9
    f/11 @ 1/200

    I think these turned out pretty good considering I was using sunny 16 shooting into the sun, and the camera has no focus assist. :lol:

    Agreed; she has a lovely backlit, halo effect in all 3 images. Not bad at all!

    The Cute Factor goes to #3, imo. What a doll! :D

    damn, those are good. all 3 of 'em. I am really drawn into your daughters world (Maisey?) with these photographs. Can't imagine the exposures getting any better than what you got here

    Ooh! Nice, Matt. You did a real good job of making up for the back-lighting.

    Very nice! I think the lighting and exposure worked out fine, they look great and she looks like she's having fun there!

    Great shots Matt epecially considering you shot into the sun. I like the third one the best. The borders and tone are also really great on these pictures.

    These are adorable.

    Some of my favorite memories are when my boys were this age and helped water the garden - thanks for sharing and rekindling those moments.

    When you say the camera has no focus assist - does that mean the viewfinder is wysisyg and you basically guess the distance to set the focus?

    Beautiful shots, Matt! Love the contrast, and she's adorable!

    I've always wanted to work up the nerve to try out one of those folders, but I suck at estimating distance!

    Yes, the viewfinder is a square hole cut in the body above the lens, and not a very accurate representation of what you're going to get, particularly under 10 feet. The Titan does have a DOF scale though; I try to stay between f/8 and f/16 to keep the DOF as high as possible because I also suck at guessing distances accurately, although I'm getting better.

    One thing I didn't mention: to my back is a big white garage door which acted like a reflector, helping deal with the contrast some.

    Great job with the exposure KS, I would have guessed you'd used a little fill flash.
