I Really Want to Title This, "Dude!" and Then Give You a High Five, but That Might be Too Nerdy

50mm, f/2, 1/125, Nikon D700 (not mine), SOOC except for yogurt removal from her face

See those eyes? And that creamy skin? And that awesome exposure? Well...for me it's a photo that had me literally jumping up and down because I was so excited by it. I've been working on my exposure and focus lately through my 365 project and I really feel like I'm making some progress. I'm also going through a massive photo re-org to clear some hard drive space and have a workable catalog of photos. This process has been really interesting since I am looking at every single photo I've ever taken. I get to see how far I have come, technically, compositionally, and how much more comfortable I am with my camera.
I'm getting there...

Beautiful shot. You are right her eyes are so blue and I love the creaminess of the shot.

love the contrast between her blue blue eyes and her rosy lips on her pale palette of her porcelain face.

And my goodness how she's grown! Glad you're feeling progress. I am still crawling in the photostakes. I'd like to see the shot WITH yoghurt however. Just for comparison y'know :-)

Having proof of your progress via photo is such a positive affirmation. And my, what a beautiful subject you have to work with!

Great shot, Bunny! It is so fun when you hit those photography milestones and know that you got it right.
