Girl from Onipetesi

I'm in Lagos for the weekend to document a wedding today.
I finished my equipment check in preparation for the wedding. Lying in bed not being able to sleep, I start going through photos I got today during a brief walk when this photo caught my eye and had my full attention. Its the first of several photographs I made of the child. I watched her for about 10 mins while she licked her lollipop and played so comfortably by the gutter. I just thought it was interesting. With the pp style I choose to use, I tried to depict the serenity I noticed she felt despite being by the gutter.

Not to sure how that pans out and would love your opinion and thoughts.

OMG its 12:43:40 AM and I'm still awake!

This is a wonderful capture. Fantastic use of the atmospheric style that the 50mm at f1.4 can produce. Lovely soft focus and buttery background blur. The pp emphasizes the still dusty serenity of the scene. Great subject and composition. Love it
Obi Somto: thanks spark
