Too Much for Him

Canon EOS REBEL XT 1/500 second F/11.0 ISO 200 95 mm


"The moment always dictates in my work. What I feel, I do. This is the most important thing for me. Everybody can look, but they don't necessarily see. I never calculate or consider; I see a situation and I know that it's right, even if I have to go back to get the proper lighting."
~ Andre Kertesz

rick from brisbane, Australia

Great stuff. Although it is at a pool it reminds me a little of a famous monochrome photo of a New York street scene from many years ago where a fire hydrant is going off and kids are playing. Well done Mariana.

Christian Richer from Le Havre, France

What strikes me is the confrontation of two figures. The legs of a woman who seems suspended like a divine apparition, and this little bundle of joy, so touching in its confusion!

Perfectly composed! I love how the sunlight highlights the water and catching the girl in mid-flight gives the illusion that the water blasts are sending her into the air.
