So next on the farm is feeding the lambs, gotta get the little ones trained early to do these jobs. Everyone needs someone just a little bigger to show you the way. Her motto, "Just do it!"

Hi Steven
Some nice elements in this. The colours are good, the subject is excellent, with the lambs following the girl to feeding.
In a few other respects, though, it's a little bit "snapshot"-ish, the subject is very centrally-placed within the frame, there doesn't seem too much attention paid to elements like depth-of-field, or even background.
I can't help thinking that if you had moved a dozen paces backwards and three paces to the left, and used portrait-composition to capture girl + lambs + boy in a tightly-grouped shot, with the bushes as an out-of-focus backdrop, it would have been a better shot.
My apologies if this critique is a little too in-depth.

I like the sense of life you caught here, with your (amazing:_) )model mid stride, washing in thebackground, other wee child busy with the lamb in motion... interesting angle, too...
thanks agian steve...

Can I pinch the fruit off that tree,please??? This shot is just so real, I've got one somewhere of my 3rd daughter about 18 months with a kid about the size of the lamb trying to sit on her knee on the sofa in the lounge because someone left the gate open didnt they. Fun.

Hello Steve,
you have captured the heart and soul of your people.
Congratulations. TFS Thomas
