What were the camera settings for this image: : f 2.8, 1/640, ISO 100, 24mm.

What was your inspiration for the image? I had been taking photos of the gorgeous pregnant mama, and all of a sudden her little girl started to cry because she had scratched her hand in the sea. So her mummy bent down and splashed water onto her hands. At that moment, I noticed the light reflecting off the water between them and so I quietly photographed the calm, beautiful moment.

Why do you love this image? I love that the light reflecting off the water looks as though it is passing from the mother's hands into her daughter's hands. I also love the intimacy between mother and daughter here, and I'm glad I chose the perspective of shooting almost in line with their hands as I feel that this highlights their connection.
