"the little things" challenge finalists

First of all, w.o.w. 

..I had such a hard time choosing only five photos from fifty-four. I saw way more than five amazing shots, and was tempted to have twenty finalists instead of five. ;) But, I decided to stick with my original plan and attempt the grueling task of choosing

 In the end, here are the five photos I felt best showed me "the little things" uniquely. 

By Makenna. This is just so close, so intimate. The focus is just perfect, and I have never seen this true-to-life expression captured before! Stunning. 

By Marcia.  I love closeness of the shot, the deep color of the eggs, and the way they are nestled so sweetly in their home. 

By Mary, who managed to capture the ever-moving legs of a toddler with perfection. What gorgeous fall colors, and lovely bokeh! I especially love the subject: truly a "little thing" that is so important. 

By Lauren. What a quaint, pretty shot! Lauren captured the "little things" in life via her miniature jug and jar. I love the colors, and how big the blueberries look from this vantage point! 

By Libbi. This is just darling--candid shots are the best. I love the focus, the pig tails, the polka dots,  everything!

..Now, it's your turn! Vote for your fave on the poll on the sidebar, and we'll announce winners next week, as well as showcase some honorable mentions and favorites from other participants. 

Thank you all so much for participating, and please consider joining me for next month's photo challenge (which is yet to be announced).  :)

  8. I luv the little girl in red! - if the sun had been shinning about an inch over- on her exactly- it would have been a better picture, but i think it's the best out of them all. :)
