What a wonderful littel girl all decorated with flowers on her head and dress.She has a darling expression on her face.All this could make a old retired peditrician long for the days when he could see and treat 20 40 of these wonderfull littel ones each day.The image is well done. The girl is sharp and the costumed people in the background are blurred. This makes the little girl stsnd out and this is a special cay to dress up. Is this little angel related to you???

So sweet. And whatever the celebration is, for me this is the true portrait of Spring!

A wonderful image capturing the innocence of childhood. I don like the contrast between the child and the background individuals which, as Nathan says, serves to make her stand out strongly in the picture.

Nathan, she is not related to me but I know her parents. Every time this girl sees a camera, she is instantly ready to pose!

She looks beautiful indeed! We probably will hear more from her.

They said of Ingrid Bergman that she was such a good actress because she was in love
with the camera.

The busy background is so distracting that I can't properly appreciate the remarkable capture of the sweet face.

She is such a strong image that the background dosent matter.
