What wonderful children you make Henrik!
Very good portrait, but what is the orange thing on the right?

@Curly: Thank you so much, Curly! I can only do such a wonderful child once, so this is the same, just processed a bit differently ;-)
The orange thing on the right is a photo lamp that was meant to enlighten her backhead. But it wouldn't work properly, so I switched it on permanently at low light.
By the end of the day this was Anna's preferred portrait - she liked the fuzzy thing in the background in contradiction to the other portrait, which she found too ordinary. Because of this I took the liberty of processing the other one to my likings, whereas this one is processed more to Anna's likings.
Btw. we're doing another shoot together on March 10, a week before her 28th birthday!

David from Detroit, United States

A lovely portrait. It is so informal in the pose and in the composition, and very natural. There is no sense of self-consciousness on the part of the model. I like the tonal ranges from the highlight side to the shadow side. Well done. I like the previous portrait, too, but this one is special.

@David: Thanks, David! This is my daughter's favorit photo, clearly due to the relaxed emotion. Nice also, that you like the lightning.
