A picture taken in our van just after tennis lessons. She was reading an Archie comic as we waited for my older daughter to finish her lesson, but was patient enough to look up a couple times, and it was the day of the challenge deadline so I wanted a shot. Jessica is photogenic and makes it easy to get a good pic. Used a long lense for shallow dof, cropped carefully and that was about it. Thanks to all for the comments... love getting comments...

Absolutely love the expression - to me almost an amused tolerance with a mischievous glint. There is also a feeling of quiet admiration - she is pleased with the person she's looking at. This shot draws me in. Excellent job of exposure, getting the detail in the shadow under the hat without blowing out the cheeks.

I love it how the eyes are in the darkness of the visor yet still bright enough. Lighting is very even. Nice catch light in the eyes.

Seems to fit her OK. She sure has a huge attitude... good attitude. I think she have every likelihood of filling both the had and her dad's shoes. Apart from a slight blue color cast, and the overwhelming whiteness of the background, this shot is wonderful.

I really like how the shadow from the hat, in a way, highlights her eyes. 8

Nice pose, expression, composition and eye contact. Colors are a bit on the cool side.
