I know the score isn't the main thing, but this seems severely underated to me. Lovely portrait.

You have captured her beauty and innocence so well in this magical emotive portrait. As a mother to another Mother, I can feel the love you have for your daughter in this fine emotive capture..... She is beautiful in every sense of the word.

Yes you are right. Thankyou for that Scalvert. Even old photographers need advice every now and again....lol!

Just saw your image. How did this score so low ? Deserves much higher.

ETA: In Japanese KITA means North. Just thought that might be interesting for you.

Only 11... but what a beautiful woman she's becoming. She really is a very very lovely girl, Judi. You have every right to be oh so very proud of her.

What a beautiful portrait of Kita! She has a maturity in her gaze, an aura well beyond her age.

I like this, it seems different to traditional portraits of 'beautiful' girls. Her expression is lovely.

First word that came to mind was "ingenue" - she looks like a movie star.
