Challenge: Portrait with Spectacles (Basic Editing)
Camera: Canon EOS-30D
Lens: Canon EF 100mm f/2.8 USM Macro
Location: My Studio, Australia

My darling girl.

She started wearing spectacles at 4 years old. It was SO IMPORTANT for me to find funky glasses to match her personality, but unfortunately here in Australia the choice for children is SO limited.

So I searched and searched and searched, and when I finally found the store with these in them I nearly cried!

She is SO GOOD with her glasses - she's a very actively little girl and she's the only child in her class that wears them, but she SO respectful of them - I'm very proud of her for that.

So this is a tribute to my little Princess of the Glasses.

The simplicity of this is very nice. I like the detail and especially the little scar on her forehead

Lisa, your family is doubly blessed, firstly in having a daughter as beautiful as this and secondly in her having a mother who can capture this beauty so wonderfully

Another lovely portrait, super composition, dof and sharpness and I love the complimentary colours of glasses and her top.

I am glad that she is so good with her glasses as a fellow spectacle wearer i can empathise with the fact that they can be a nuisance but remind her that it is only great works of art that get framed not the everyday

I started wearing glasses when I was very young too...My mother let me pick out my own and one year I picked out these HUGE light pink framed glasses...I thought I was so cool! They covered half of my face....Great picture!

Nicely shot and pretty subject. The shine on the forehead is too noticeable. I did this on my entry too, and frankly am not certain what is the best way to prevent it in basic editing where you can't soften it with Photoshop.
Good portrait.

I find it utterly fascinating when such young people can expose themselves so maturely. Fantastic capture.

I'd like to see the eyes. There is a tiny bit of red/brown in the background at the bottom that I'd remove by cropping.
