Getting into a van??? Talk about making "any ol' moment" magical!!! Wow!

If this were my daughter, this would be framed in public display as long as I lived! It's beautiful, and timeless!

Love the tones on this, even if she does appear to have very big forearms (I'd step back a bit to avoid this, if you wanted to). Good composition otherwise.

Excellent capture, great clarity in the eyes and you've captured the character really well. My only small criticism is that the hand side on like that looks very big next to the face and so distracts from the portrait very slightly. A small complaint on a great portrait though

great pose, feels natural. I like the choice of B&W, good conversion. darkening the background was a good idea, drawing attention the pretty little lady

I had to stare at this for quite a while before I could figure out what to say. I still don't know. But she's so genuine... and that title fits well, because her age and facial expression make her look to be on the verge of sudden, profoud maturity. There isn't a thing about this photo I'd change.

My pick for blue although I won't have time to vote. Excellent use of natural light and the conversion to B&W is professional quality.
