great eyes, the crop may be too tight at the top, great shot though.

Yeah the makeup wouldn't bother as much if she looked 12. She looks about seven to me..

otherwise beautiful colors and she has very quiet, pretty eyes.

Nice job, but on the verge of being a little over processed to me. Still a 7.

Nice skin tones
07/24/2007 03:15:47 PM
Not a fan of makeup on little girls.

Aside from that this is a very nice portrait.

wonderful lighting - maybe a bit much on the sharpening of the eyes
07/23/2007 08:45:10 PM
Great shot!

Remarkable model... A little better technically and it would have gotten a seven.

hahah how diva! the focus on her face is beautiful but i wish ethere was more texture, when photographing children its best to leave their skin alone because its normally beautiful the way it is

great job, a natural modeling talent
07/22/2007 04:36:18 PM
One of the best ! I love the pose , composition , colors ...

I just couldn't take my eyes away from this one. Has some sort of mysticism about what the subject is thinking at the time. The sharp focus on the face and the softness elsewhere adds to this effect. Nice work.

Excellent work. Good choice of wardrobe. Eyes just make the magic - 9

Just simply amazing. Great work on the eyes. Your model has the perfect expression on her face. I like how hte hair is blowing back. Your choice of focus works. Just a grat photo.

Absolutely stunning !
Perfect lighting, skin tones - and those catch lights are to die for.

Nice portrait....seems like there may be a tad bit of over processing with noise reduction/neat imaging, as the skin seems x-tra smooth...maybe not...but overall, this is a nice capture of a lovely girl. *7*
07/18/2007 08:16:36 PM
I like the way the hair falls away with the narrow dof. I think the clothes are too busy and distract from the face - a plain top would have been better.

My initial thought upon seeing this photo was one of Drew Berrymore as a young girl in the movie "Fire Starter". Very intense eyes. Well done!
07/18/2007 01:47:48 PM
Pretty. Nice light on her face.
07/18/2007 01:41:33 PM
Very nice portrait, looks a little over processed (the eyes in particular) and so less "real" but a nice result all the same
07/18/2007 11:13:15 AM
love the softness yet the eyes pop!
07/18/2007 09:05:32 AM
y good DOF and sin tones
07/18/2007 08:57:30 AM
Stunningly great portrait work! One of my favorites in this challenge. A joy to view! (10)

Lovely shallow depth of field. Gives the shot a powerful story. Nice work!
07/18/2007 01:16:54 AM
Beautiful eyes.
07/18/2007 12:15:26 AM
