Took this picture of my little girl while on a lovely fall hike. Thought with the title, it might be appropriate for this weeks challenge.

Cute child, nice boke in background. The lighting is too harsh and direct, try diffusers with key light on side plus fill.

Cute little girl! The blown out yellow in the back is pretty distracting. Closer crop perhaps?

Great topic. That yellow plant is way too distracting though. You also photographed her straight on which is somewhat unflattering. And then you put her right in the middle of the image which isn't particularly good either. 4

Portrait-wise, this is a great photo of the little girl. The title is appropriate as well. But the tree on the left is so blown out or bright that it really distracts the viewer from the subject of the picture, the girl.

Don't know if these help or not, but I hope they do in some way as I want to leave constructive feedback:

Overall very nice photo, great subject and pose. The lighting on her is great but the background brightness is a little bit distarcting.

The yellow in the background is really distracting. Cute shot, but she is the second thing I see.

Great portrait! I find the bright yellow tree on the background to be fairly distracting, though.

Good oxymoron. Decent photo. I like the positioning of the girl in the frame. Could be a little sharper around her eyes yet. The yellow blob in the background is extremely distracting.

Good luck in the challenge.

a great oxymoron...she's gorgeous...focus isn't spot on, seems to be on her elbows...perhaps shifting to manual focus would have helped
