I went out with my daughter and a camera today and snapped a shot where she was looking at the blue sky and it made her blue eyes even bluer. C&C appreciated

Nicely captured. I especially like #2 - can't see anything that needs to be changed. Good job.

Thanks again, except I don't have a portrait setting - no backdrop or lighting - I have too many hobbies and have to balance my time and expenses

sorry I didnt mean a studio shot I just mean portrait instead of landscape (tall instead of wide) include her feet and what not! natural light, no backdrop or lighting needed. theres quite a bit of dead space and it makes it look like a snap shot, nice and clear, but framing is what I originally meant by portrait. :)

oh, that will have to wait till next time - I actually went out hoping to see some birds and squirrels, so I brought my telephoto lens out instead of usual walk around 18-50.

It was a snapshot - very unexpected and unplanned :)

Beautiful little one. My daughter has BLUE eyes like that and one thing I would recommend is to be careful if/when you post process. I have to mind this fact or completely mask her eyes so I don't make them look freaky or alien like. Nice capture!!

very nicely done

I am thinking of doing the planned shoot with my daughter in some nice setting when it gets warmer, for now, I am just running after her with a camera looking for lucky moment and snapping away :)

here is one more with my new to me Canon 40D...I know background totally sucks and things grow out of her head :)

That's a really good picture. It may look good with some selective coloring of her eyes as well IMO.

Do you think it's overdone in this photo?

I think it looks good, its on the edge of being to vibrant, but thats only my opinion. Can you post up the original to see how much change you made.
