I was working night shifts, so trying to sleep in the day when my doorbell rang, and THIS is what I found. I figured I was up anyway, I may as well take some pictures.

Hie Karen,

Welcome to Treklens..

Well well, this is a good shot you have there. 2 cute and photogenic kids smiling at you in the morning. A good medicine to cure your tiredness.


Welcome to TL.
Two cute little girls. You took the shot from your level looking down on the girls. Did you do this on purpose and did you consider crouching down to get to their eye level?


Hi Karen,
Welcome to TL, my Friend from TrekEarth. You're starting with a very nice image, with two little girls. When I see images like this, I begin thinking about a 3rd kid - I have 2 sons, no daughter. :) Nice work, Madame, congrats. Best regards, László

That was certainly the cutest surprise. The textbook says that, in general, kids shouldn’t be photographed from above, because they're little anyway. However, the composition here works very well indeed. The focus however is not where it's supposed to be. Very photogenic models!

Hi Karen,
What a lovely good morning it is! I like much this POV showing a good shortcut. You capture nice expression on their pretty faces. Excellent colors on the raincoats. Bravo and welcomme on TL Karen! Annie

Hello Karen!

Nice shot of these charming children! TFS.
But, IMHO, you should kneel down to put your camera to their eye-level.

Hi Karen,
Beautiful picture, it looks like Halloween in the rain! They are very cute girls!
Natasha :0)

Great candid.
I love that you took it from this angle... why?
You have stated in your notes that this was what you found at the doorstep. The whole point of it would be seeing what you saw from your perspective. "Good Morning" is a great title that goes with it. I think you did a great job with the perspective here.
I would also like to point out that the background is unobtrusive which would have been better than being at their level and snapping with the neighbours houses in the background.

hi karen!
nice perspective and very sweet photo.

welcome on TL :-))

Hello Karen.
Lovely picture,nice portrait,well done.
Best Regards

Hello Karen,
Beautiful girls and a lovely portrait of them.
Good framing, great POV, nice natural colors.
Very well done:)

hi karen, great capture. i like the colors and the POV you took. the kids are sooo cute. tfs :)


Delicious!!!This is such a lovely photo. The kids are Soooo adorable, and I lave the POV.

hi Karen.
very good option for the high pov on this one.
adorable expressions of your models.
good work, thank you.

Hi Karen - just looking through your gallery and this little beauty jumped out at me. I love these natural shots of kids...the looks appear genuine and catch their personalities beautifully. Lovely, sweet shot - congrats!

In Alberta is usual some young princess ring at the door to be photographied or you know them? :)
The result is the same for us! Colorful clothing and they give you excellent expressive look! How concentrate the one the the left! Eyes and mouth give incredible expression! Of course the complice and laughing eyes of the right offer you assurance... I'm sure you know them well!

Hi Karen: A wonderful shot of these two little girls, they look so glad to see you.The light is nice the sharpness and above all the POV is super...... a heartwarming pic......Thanks Roman:0)

Hi Karen,

I can see happines in their eyes and in their smiles.

Very nice shot


I love the expressions on their faces. I also love photographing children. Their expressions are so natural and innocent. Some mischievious and some serious. You did a good job of capturing their personalities in this shot. The POV is interesting and different. Different POV sometimes makes a shot interesting. Nice and clear shot with good color as well. Welcome to TrekLens Karen and thanks for visiting my albums.
