I dont think you ruined it. I like the way the kid is looking and I might agree with UNhpy that scratching and itch might be what she is doing, but then... the whole thing seems a bit odd.... not the photographers fault but the scene.... thinking about it... (and I am not even driking :::)))
I think she might have a hankie/towel to clean some perspiration away from the lady?
I think that the photo is great! At the first sight I too noticed girl's hair. It looks interesting and attractive. But then I surprised when I saw a hand behind her back. And then the expression on the face of a little girl made me smile.:-) Well done, Lara!
The eyes of the little girl are funny! Especially because the adult with the hair seems unaware of the hand!
*smile* Great picture anyway! :-)I once took a picture at the market and realized only at home that I had caught a hand on a wallet. It could not have belonged to the owner. ;-)
You caught the girl's expression perfectly. It looks like she just got caught taking something from the cookie jar.
Thanks for stopping by! Your comments are most appreciated!
