I was going for a kind of cinematic, gloomy storm shot here. Ava looking up with an apparent sense of wonder is what made me want to go in that direction. It took a bit of Photoshop work to get this where I wanted it because the shot was actually taken in our front foyer (it wasn't raining in there) with windows and a door in the background (not very interesting). Once I was finished with this picture, for some reason, Cat Steven's song Wild World came to mind.
Thank you to Corey Leopold whose great landscape/weather shot, The Rain,
I used as the background for this one. I really appreciate that he used a creative commons license on his shot so others could work with it.
