Photographer's Note

Daddy...Daddy! I can see HIM !

The girl sitting on her dad's shoulders was eagerly anticipating among thousands of spectators, the first glimpse of Santa Claus coming to town on December 6-th.
Simply: Canadians !

One of my absolutely brilliant thoughts about the photography:

Have you noticed, folks…?
By photographing children you can call yourself a photographer without being one ???

A very nice contrasty image, George - great expression on her face - really good color - it's a good image - I love the grain.

I like the atmosphere, grainy, dark, but the girl is high lighted in the frame. I like her face expression as well. Very, very nice shot.

Bardzo ladnie Jurku.

Swietne ziarno.
Widze ze czujesz sie znakimicie z anaologowym aparatem, i ze ci to odpowiada. Myslales kiedys o cyfrowce?

George excellent capture here of this girl. I see a little grain from the 400 ISO but I tell you the lighting in this frame is excellent. Very well done!

You have an interesting gallery, I like the way you look at people, finding interest in all of them, even the simpler ones. Good capture of this young girl here, the attitude is one of anticipation but also of pride, head high, eyes strong, she seems to know what she wants.
The depth of field is good to isolate her among the crowd, but the contrast between her face and the bright white spot behind her is a bit strong.

Keep up the good work, I'm really interested in what you are showing.

You captured a great expression of this little girl, I like the grain it makes the picture more special than without it.

She looks great, George, and string, very strong. The nostrils spread out, the head up high, and the determined expression on the face, all very strong. Very nice portrait!
