Our country fair is on once again, and I snapped this tonight of some girls that work as waitresses at a restaurant I go to each day. They were obviously having alot of fun trying on hats, and I of course was having a great time snapping pictures.

I should have been a cowboy
Shoulda learned to Rope and Ride
Wearing my six-shooter, riding my pony, on a cattle drive
Stealing young girl's hearts
Just like Gene and Roy
Singing those campfire songs
Oh, I should've been a cowboy - Toby Keith

(why you ask? I just felt like it!)

About the photo:

As far as impromptu portraits go this one is fabulous.
You caught them all with great eye contact, all smiling and the ever so important catch-light in all of their eyes. I like the tight compositional framing and the background is also eye-pleasing.
I think this one scores very high in the way of street shots...
Man...this makes me think "I shoulda been a cowboy".
Great work Karen,

Hi Karen,
Very professional looking shot. Nice and clear and well cropped, the colours really stand out with this one. Good focus and shallow DOF too, you seem to be really good at portraits. Well done with this one.

Hello Karen,

A great record of your visit to the fair.
This is a great shot!
The girls have good eye-contact, the light is good, the details are shining through and their colourful dresses add that sense of fun, emphasised by their expressions and their hats.

Have a good w/e,
Bev :-)
