Photo of the Day: September 26

September 26
ISO 400, f/8, 1/40s, 18-105mm lens on Nikon D40
Keira and I have been trying to find a good day/time to take her photos for her recent birthday.  But we seem to either have somewhere to be at the golden hour or there is no golden hour because of the rain.  We tried this evening but quickly lost our light to the clouds rolling in bringing us thunderstorms.  So we're hoping we get another opportunity soon.  I like this photo of Keira because of the genuine smile - she was laughing at her brother instead of faking a smile - although the focus seems a bit soft (probably due to the slow shutter speed).  I'm forcing myself to take portraits since this is definitely an area where I need improvement, so you'll be seeing more soon.  Constructive criticism is welcomed.
