The tears of a blue-eyed angel- a very striking image. Notice how the background, I assume it is a blanket, suggests a wing peeking over her shoulder. Very well done.

Write a commentI'm having a hard time leaving this pic.The tension in the muscles at the corners of her mouth and above her eyes are incredible.Sometimes people need a good cry and can't manage it.this pic will do it.Congratulations again.

Behind The Lens

Location
In our living room. Near to the window. We live in the Netherlands
Time
It's about 16:00 on a cold winter day. It's snowing...
Lighting
Natural light only!
Equipment
Nikon D300, 85,1.8
Inspiration
I saw my daughter starting to cry, while I was taken photos of a bird outside. When I saw her tears coming out of her eyes, I made a couple of photos, and hugged her after it!
Editing
It's a RAW photo, I worked a little on it in Lightroom 4. This photo is one of the first photos I made in my whole life with a real camera! I Took 4 lessons to learn the base of df, ISO, and all the other things I never used before!
In my camera bag
Nikon D800, Nikon D300, 50mm,1.8 85mm,1.8 24-70,2.8 24-40,2.8
Feedback
This was a special moment I could catch. If you're waiting for it, it never comes...
