Innocent eyes

On sunday I was at a street show called "out of Africa". It featured various shows of African origin performed for the crowds of London in the Royal theatre. There was a great live band (don't remember their name) playing by the thames river front and that's where I saw this adorable cutie. It was quite hard to catch her because she running around and wouldn't sit still (kids huh). Anyway she kept running round in a circle, so I anticipated when she would come round again and SNAP!!!

Does anyone think I should put up the colour version?

The processing was a bit of an experiment, didn't turn out as I expected, but I think it turned out ok. What does my lovely audience think?

Loving the capture. Loving the expression. Loving those eyes...did you leave colour in them?!?
sk: not fully I removed a bit of colour to balance it with the B&W tone of the image, so I guess this is my version of a colour separation technique

This is a serious portrait. Usually you get all smiles from children, but here you get a sullen pouting expression. Invaluable!

This was the expression on her face as she was running around in circles? That's rather odd no? hee hee. I like the way she seems to connect with the viewer/camera. But I'm not too sure about the big empty space on the side. Doesn't provide any context so I would have just left it out and gone for a traditional portrait.

the tone works for its own advantage. nice focus on the eyes and the expression, makes me want to look at the child as long as I can (just to fathom what she was thinking). I like how you positioned your subject, obviously, you know what "dead center" means. i hope to comeback for more. ;-)

what a sad look she has..... well captured.
Nice capture. I wouldn't mind seeing the color version, but this one is done very well. It's interesting that the sharpest part of the image is the girl's hair in the back. But as you say, this little girl just wouldn't sit down! Well-snapped. Cheers, Brent
