    Come and play with me...

    Nikon D5100
    F-stop - f/5.6
    Exposure - 1/60
    ISO - 800
    Focal Length - 55mm


    Come and play with me...

    1. I'm trying to accomplish the lonely playful behavior of this child.
    2. I used a slow shutter speed in order to captivate the movements.
    3. I would like to know overall how the picture can be improved.

    Do you have a shot of her smiling? Her facial expression in this shot looks contemplative, not playful, IMHO. It looks as tho is in that almost trance-like place children get when they are learning thru movement. It is a form of play, but they tend not to interact with others or the environment. If this is what you are trying to capture, you've done it well.

    If I am way off base, please say so.

    I would try a crp, close to her head at the top and close to her back behind her, losing the distracting background elements in the frame.
    You may need a bit more in front of her, to show us where she is looking.
    I dont think the background elements add to the setting of the scene or the story.
    I really do like the shutter spped to show the hands moving in contrast to her face though, that is a great idea.

    Just a fraction too tight for me. I think you can get away with a tiny patch of railings/grass in the top right corner. It is well blurred there so shouldn't be too distracting.
