Just came across this wonderful candid shot. Maybe it is the softness of the image and/or the black and white tones,not sure, but I really like this shot. I hope it is adorning one of your walls. Well done

Great capture ... Hopefully that gradient border hasn't hurt you. I used it once, and it kinda hurt me ...

I like the photo overall. Good DOF, and nice use of B/W. I do however have one complaint. I would rather see a more natural inner border/glow. instead of using the canned effect I would have opted to use the burn tool or brush tool and slightly random strokes around the image...or maybe just the left or right side only.

Beautiful capture and composition. Outstanding sense of how to crop the image. Beautiful child, beautiful expression. Great way to meet the challenge.

What an adorable little girl!! :-) Very cute picture. I like the blur behind her, but I would be interested in seeing this in color. Her eyes are very expressive and I think they might come out better in color. Good composition as well!

Reminds me so much of my grand-daughter. Very nice capture of a beautiful little girlie-girl. Nice composition, with the blown out background makes this a fun image to veiw. <8>
