- I like the little moment happening in the portrait scenario. Lots of personality in the body language. Might have been more effective to frame it tighter -- loosing the distortion and having their faces be bigger in the frame.
- This is such a beautifully quaint image of youth. It’s charming and unforgettable and downright, over-the-top precious. But it would be little more than a snapshot if not for the composition, lens choice and the right moment of a pair of pursed lips and the scrunched-up hike of a pair of shorts.
