    obligatory pumpkin shot

    Took this of my munchkins during the pumpkin hunt this year. Did better with photo than pumpkins (can you say rotten??). Wish the one had a better expression. I really like the colors and the composition. Does having my second in the picture detract?

    Those pumpkins are issued

    I think the second litle one in the shot helps to give you a better idea of depth...I like the colors and the comp...if only she was smiling and not frumping-although rotten pumpkins are nothing to smile over ...are they twins or close apart?

    I suspect that she was troubled by the glare of the sunlight in her eyes and that is why she is squinting. Fair hair, strong light, I would be the same, but probably wearing sunglasses myself.

    I love the colour of the pumpkins, and to me, being a city person, seeing all the pumpkins on the ground gives me an idea now, of how they grow and are harvested. Never seen a pumpkin patch before, in all my 50 years on this planet.

    Thanks for posting such a nice image. The one thing I might have done, was a smaller aperture and get the rest of the image in the distance in forcus as well. Off into infinity.

    Awww

    Even squinting, your daugher looks cute. I love the pastel colors she is wearing, and the bright orange pumpkins. Great composition, really like how the pumpkin patch goes on and on into the distance. I think having your other daughter in the background adds to the shot, not detracts.

    Thanks

    for all your comments. I hadn't even noticed that background wasn't sharp (usually I have the opposite problem with the Canon G2 - too much sharp!) I'm glad you agree about my other daughter in the back (they're twins). It's nice to feel you were on the right track about something.
