FRESH AIR

This picture happened quite by accident. I have been pushing myself to shoot only in manual mode, but I am much more used to the settings INSIDE my house than dealing without outside light. So, in between finding the right settings, I snapped this shot of my little boy on the swings. I know it isn't exact, or perfect to the trained eye, and is overexposed, but I feel so drawn to this picture when I think of fresh air. :)

ISO 200, f14, 1/40 sec

I thought about fresh air too, but I couldn't figure out how to take a picture of it. Great job! You captured it!

There is everything RIGHT about this photo Rach! Great composition, the motion is actually physically moving- you are the woman!

I'm so drawn to this photo. It caught my attention immediately and I can't stop looking at it. I love the joy on his face and the feeling of movement.

Where you in motion when this was shot? I also love the fresh air...Spring, oh I can't wait for Spring.

I love this photo, too. There's something very cool about it... maybe because it's the kind of photo you could never plan for or pose. I love that his face is just focused enough to see the expression.

Jon says this photo looks like it came straight out of an art gallery.

oh my! Art galleries? WOW! I really never thought that from this picture and almost DIDN'T post it because of how imperfect I felt it looked at first. Ican't remember if I was in motion. I think I was trying to follow him with the camera, because usully I can focus on his face and get the background as a blur...
