p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · watching her bird fly away

I was at a Humming Bird leg banding today and after the birds had the band installed people from the audience could hold the bird and then release,,

this young girl was so excited and when the bird flew out of her hand her arms went overhead and she had the biggest smile watching the bird fly up to the sky,,

Great timing, can really see the delight in her eyes. I might crop off her knuckles and the ping Balloon just behind her head, but that might be a little to much nit-picking.

First...my standard intro to anyone "new" to me on this forum...
My comments or suggestions below are not a criticism of you, your model, your talent or skill. I offer them in a friendly tone of voice and with the sole intent to help you with a second POV and set of eyes. If you read sincere questions and simple suggestions as "criticism" of you, then you will miss how I am trying to help you.

Of course this may be your own "style" or your own "vision" and I suppose we can assume that the images look just like they do because that is exactly how you like them. That is OK too. It just shows that there are differences of "opinion" on what looks good. IF these are exactly what you want and like, then by all means continue making your images look like that and have fun doing it. As I always say: "Follow your own muse."

I enjoy seeing photos showing expression, and kids can be good sources of that.

But, in this case, I think "the shot" would have been something that showed her WITH the bird in hand.

As the above image is closely cropped (framed) and only shows a face, it does not show the scene, the reason for expression or the specialness of having a bird in hand.

Also, facial expressions are subject to interpretation (something I encouraged for two years on this forum as part of my Your Impressions series), and it is interesting to see how the same expression can have different impressions.

For example, this image and the expression it shows could also be one interpreted as "fright" as it appears she is shielding her face/head and may be frightened of something or someone above her.

Hope these comments help you.
