Young Lady

A candid portrait of one of the young ladies at her first communion on Saturday at Sacred Heart in Newark.

Three candid (I hate to classify them as "street") people shots or portraits after several days of showing you big architecture at Sacred Heart Cathedral.

I thought about not posting this, but even in the poor light and shadows on the face I had no control over, I hope it is flattering to her and that she and her family would find it pleasing. If you think I should take it down, please tell me. Some local tonal corrections are definitely called for here, but not tonight.

The young people were up in the chancel after the ceremony, posing for family pictures and momentos, posing alone, with family memebers or with the archbishop and the official photographer. This young lady, beautifully dressed, did not appear to have many family members with her.
Beautiful capture Frank! : )
