I was completely swamped during the voting for this challenge, and didn't have time to make a single comment. In fact, I'm letting my membership lapse for now, as I don't have the time to contribute to the site the way I should.

I like this one a lot. (I'm working to be a professional photographer, of children amongst other things, so this appeals to me.) Candid shots are the best, and this certainly qualifies. The only suggestion I might make is to leave a bit more negative space in there. That is, zoom out a bit on this one. The background is pretty interesting, and while it might overpower the girl, I think it might be worth investigating.

Love the oversaturated, overexposed look, too.

Great use of color. Cyan background, green dress, and red shoes, and the multicolor lollipop!

Love her expression. I like the image treatment although i wish the highlights weren't so close to being blown out.

I love her facial expression. The light n her dress is somewhat blown out.

very cute -- I wish there was a little more space around her. She seems squished.

She doesn't look happy. Harsh side lighting has caused some over exposure.

I like this shot, very cute :) I think a little more space on the left side of the frame so her lollipops arent so close to the edge would improve composition.

Artsy, gritty and well composed. You break some rules here, but all with good purpose. Nice work! 8
