This is really a very nice image. One of the best portraits I've seen on DPC. The moment/expression captured is perfect. Like the light through the hair. The only thing is the scarf, but the rest of the image dominates strongly enough that it loses any attention - in my opinion.

I was so hoping to see this in the top 10.
This really is about as good of a child portrait as it gets.

Oh no, those Icelanders keep breeding girls that look like this and the future of DPC is sealed! :)

oh and you nailed the shot.

Very nice light and a nice relaxed look on your model. The black and white suits and I like how you used a square crop which has given this big picture size. The distance to the background has put it nicely out of focus and your subject is nicely in focus. The crop is also good. All round a very good portrait.

Back to comment. This is a beautful shot of a very sweet model. Her eyes are stunning and I love the light in her flyaway hair. Great in b&w - excellent contrast. Very well done. 8

Fíla hvernig þú ert búin að cropa hana, miklu betra heldur en útgáfan sem maður var búin að sjá á ljósmyndakeppni.is. Tónar og lýsing alveg til fyrimyndar og ekki skemmir fyrir hversu krúttleg hún er ;) Færð 9 frá mér.

What a beautiful little girl. The "wildness" of her hair really adds to the naturalness of the shot. Great work.
