This is a little Mayan girl that I met while doing free dental work in Belize over Spring Break. The kids in the village loved having their pictures taken and I was more than happy to oblige them.

Editting included USM, curves (for contrast), a little boost of saturation, and a little NeatImage.

Wow, I thought this one would score better. I was one of your 8's. Highly underrated IMO. And I like the fact that it is taken from above. Bending the 'rules' of photography really works here.

Deceptively simple, I think, and excellent results. The eyes are in focus and placed in the composition just right (rule of thirds and all that). Good color palette, the skin tones are accented both by the white shirt and the muted green and brown background. I like the wisps of hair going out of focus. Best thing though is the child's expression. I think you placed the camera at just the right height. Good luck
