Awwww, Happy Birthday!!! :-) It's a nice shot Kris, it's just hard to "wow 'em" in free studies. :)

The technicals: excellent. Lighting is nicely smooth. Background is black. Conversion to B&W is wonderful. Composition is good except I would have moved the nerf gun down may two inches. You get both her eyes (which is good), but the half-cut glasses, to me, is a poorer choice than making them all visible.

The feel: subtle. captures a bit of who she is. Like I said above, a bit gutsy to hide some of the face for a portrait, but you almost got away with it. Showing just a bit more would have been better.

The game: too subtle for DPC. Don't worry about that. You can tell it's a quality shot from only having 8 votes of 1-3 and far more 6s than 4s. It just doesn't have the "wow" to carry the day at DPC.

Nice composition...like the lines. Good, soft lighting and highlights. Good contrast. 7

This would be a cool picture without that blaster in her face.
