Sorry but I disagree.
Mud and dirt actually add to the gritty nature of a football action shot.

Bits of partially chewed cookie just distract the viewer from an otherwise cute face. When I first saw this picture I thought he had moles on his face or acne.
Rather than thinking 'Aw how cute' my first thought was 'What the hell is that on his face?'. I then noticed the cookie in his hand.

It always surprises me when people in the kiddie section of the forum proudly post a picture of their kids hoping that you'll say 'So cute!' when actually most people are slightly repulsed by bits of snot dribbling from the babies nose. Taking a cute child portrait means either a) wiping the kid's face or b) cloning out the mess.
I know that kids by their nature are messy but that doesn't mean other people want to see it all in ultra-high res on their PC screens.


You appear to be more interested in the quality of the photographers skill to prep the shot than the actual moment that is being capture. That is fine, but some people take photos to capture a moment. And at that moment the kid was eating a cooking in what appears to be a comfortable chair and he is enjoying himself quite a bit.

Again, it wasnt a portrait. Think of how you would look at that photo 10 years down the road.

How come all of you seem to have missed the part where I said you should clone out the bits of food?
You've still captured the moment but you take 20 seconds to edit it to avoid putting people off their dinner.
If you're going to make sarcastic comments then at least read my posts properly.

i didnt miss that part. The food on the shirt is part of the shot. Hes a toddler. Toddlers are messy when they eat. If there was no food at all and just the cookie I would think the shot was staged and not very good. To me the food on the face and the clothes adds to the kid eating the cookie. Again, the shot is quite obvious that he is eating. Cup, high chair, cookie, it all conveys eating. Kids eat messy. They go together.

How can you think that the shot is staged and not very good without half- eaten cookie on the face?
Are you saying that without that food you'd think that the parents had given the toddler a half a cookie and told it to smile?
That would be a bit odd imo.

Look at the shot you took of your own niece. It captures the moment, it's not forced, staged or unnatural and it turned out cute. (Plus it demonstrates the quality of the lens which is after all what this thread is for.)
However if your niece had a snot bubble I'm sure you would've taken 20 seconds to clone it out because the shot is worth saving.

great, now I have to go look for a snot bubble shot. I actually dont usually shoot people but when I do I dont shoot them in a situation that I wouldnt like to be shot in so usually food/eating pictures are out. So I honestly couldnt say if I would or wouldnt clone it out. But I think in this instance it looks better with the cookie.

OK, back to the pics. Another shot of my niece.

look, grandma had made some cakes for him, he'd had his tea and as a treat we gave him a cake. Whilst eating the cake and watching the last part of the children's hours on CBEEBIES he looked so cute (to us as his parents) that I nipped to get my camera out so I could get an 'action' shot of him eating the cakes, so Grandma could have a picture for her album.
Nothing more.. nothing less.

now lets see some more pix.... messy face or not ;)
