See of Wonder by =throughHislens is one of Sean's best photos that I've seen so far in his gallery. The use of the reflection effect in order to show more of the girl's face and expression is "made of pure win" and serves to show how much of a great eye Sean had at the time - and still has, so don't forget to check the rest of his gallery too! :)

This photograph means so much to me because it was when my mom really saw the potential in my photography. We went to Disney and were on a boat going from Epcot to MGM Studios (now called Hollywood Studios). The little girl sitting in front of me was looking out the window. It was perfect because she is wearing her princess outfit and looking deeply to the possibilities outside.

Everything that's to be said about this photo likely has been said by someone on here already, or by someone else, but I just wanted to add that I really love it, the soft light, her expression, the colours springing up at the viewer. It's a beautifully captured moment, intimate and sort of "silent", wonderful in a lot of aspects.

I'm just going to make this fav #400 for this image :P

Sean, here are my questions:

What message do you intend to send with this photograph?

Do you have any artistic influences and/or art movements?
throughHislens's avatar
I wanted to capture the state of who this little girl was and also what may be in store for her. I like to open up a link between the past, present, and future. I did not stage the shot either- a true moment in time when she was looking out the window and happened to be wearing her princess outfit.

Influences would be realism and then the gradual shift from modernism to post-modern imagery within photography which also links to the photographer Henri Cartier-Bresson who termed the 'decisive moment.'
