Hi from the Critique Club. Hopefully I can offer you a few thoughts on your picture.

First impression: Although it is titled pajamas, the picture seems more about the expression on the girls face(which is great BTW). IMO, this pictures fit into the challenge relies on the title.

Composition: Compostion is overall pleasing. Since PJ's were the source of comfort, I'd like to seem more of them. Good job with the slight head/camera tilt to add some dynamic flow to the picture.

Technical: LIghting is mentioned above. Not sure what type of flash you used but an overall softer light would have portrayed comfort more clearly. (read: Hit the voters in their head:)) Some natural window light would have been a good choice. Also, next time move the subject farther away from the back ground so the BG has more blurring.

Challenge: Your subject was appropriate, just needed more emphasis on the pajamas instead of the girl's expression. The lighting issues were probably also responsible for the low finish.

Please PM me with any comments or questions.

Keep shooting.
