Claire and Livi

Here is a candid portrait that I stumbled upon at a Halloween party this year.

If I run autolevels on it, everything goes over exposed and blown; I prefer the straight out of camera look to the composition. It also is slightly grainy - though the camera was (and still is) on ISO 100.

Had I really posed the shot, I would of course ensured that the dress label was hidden or removed and fixed any number of other things which aren't quite working.

However this is my favourite picture out of the many I have taken this year. OK Livi is squawking but that adds something I think.

On to the next post - more of Claire, I am afraid :)
