Une nouvelle fois j'y retrouve de la joie et puis j'aime la dynamique que ton tilt produit, un peu comme si tu jouais avec cette gamine... Courir et prendre des photos à la volée... Peut-être un point de vue un peu plus au ras du sol aurait été meilleur mais difficile, en tout cas celle-ci aussi me donne le sourire...

What a wonderful photograph. Such a beautiful b/w, you probably have the best b/w conversions on PH, Simon.

Hi simon,

Delicate, innocent moment captured.

Watching the picture makes us so fresh & feel like entering in the world of child.

Though monochrome, it is full with color of nature, joy & childhood.

Hello Simon, we could think that it was an easy catch, however there are strong points here, the different layers created by the water, the crops and the sky are great as well as her expression. The slight tilt is very smart, without it it would ruin the picture, it brings some dynamism as well as the moment when you've pressed the shutter, while she was on the move with that great Thaï smile... Thanks for the invitation...

I was wondering why this centered composition works so well... And I may have found the answer. It's that large pool of water covering the middle of the scene and embracing the sweet smile of the girl. Its form is really perfect to guides us through the picture. We start in the right top, follow the curve and meet the girl and her radiance. And then we leave the frame by the bottom on the right also. The tilt adds some dynamics to the photo. One has the sense that she is walking down... Very good.

Là je te retrouve vraiment! les grands espaces, ces sourires de folie, la paille, les pieds dans l'eau: du bon et vrai Simon, la mouche du dragon! ;-) j'aime aussi ce tilt allié à cette superbe courbe faite par le champ.. elle est votée!
