    My Views: The first pic seemed to be a bit soft and a bit over exposure (may be it is my taste :-) )..I like the second one ..good framing and colors..bokeh and candid..

    Thanks, Raycer, for your comments.

    I guess I sort of agree with Ajith's comment that parts of the first picture is a bit overexposed. Probably would benefit from a little bit of flash so that I could decrease the exposure overall without causing too much shadow over the right side of the picture. However, I was using 70-200mm lens and also would have lost the moment if I wanted to think too much about lighting! I think that is the biggest challenge of kids photography. Too fast for me...

    Hi Sedali - The first image is great in its composition. I like the way the left-hand side of the truck adds to the triangular nature of the subject. I'm sure that was intentional! On the matter of exposure, I agree a fill-in flash could have balanced the lighting of the face, but overall, given the vivid colours, I do not find the picture particularly overexposed. Ajith raises the point about personal taste and perhaps there is scope in these forums for a wider discussion on "taste" and "liking" and technical merit and so on.
