It’s hard to imagine an expression of more generally happiness on the face of a toddler than this. I am pleased with the sharpness of this image since he was particularly energetic at the time. When I snapped the shutter I thought it was going to be a dud, because I knew I didn’t get all of his face in the frame. But I actually prefer the way this is framed. He has such beautiful, expressive eyes, and the framing helps to focus on that, I think.
Technical Details: f/5; 1/200 exposure; ISO 800; 39 mm focal length
What’s Good: The expression, the clarity of joy in his eyes
What’s Bad: The flash caused it to be a little hot, and I wasn’t good enough at post-processing to just the right complexion details.
