Re: Camera Club Exercise, The Camera You Have With You

Sometimes a photo is destined to alter society's mentality. Sometimes a photo is destined to move people for change. Sometimes a photo is destined to move you to tears, or peals of laughter. But sometimes a photo's destiny is much more humble in nature and its purpose is no more than to teach you a ...

Overall this is a great casual portrait. The only distracting elements are the stray hairs in the upper corners of her eyes an going into her mouth. And boy does she have sparkling eyes.

Why are you NOT in national galleries?
