I am sure I am going to get hammered about it being blown out, but I actually did it on purpose. I wanted to have an angelic effect to this picture.... like she was coming out of the light.

I don't care what score this gets as long as it beats timfythetoo... we have a daughter portrait smackdown going for this challenge and I'm bringing the smack...

*** Post Challenge ***

I really need to start proof reading my entry comments before submitting... I had so many typos I actually felt embarrassed.

Thanks for all the great comments. My daughter was so excited to see her picture doing so well. I actually had some really nice shots from this shoot, but this one really stood out.

My “victory” over timfythetoo was bittersweet because his image was severely underrated in my opinion.

Thanks again…

Very pretty portrait. I like her expression, it is very natural and not over the top.

Hey is she a real princess? Oh an angel, yes. Very nice entry and great little model.

This is very good. I love how her hair frames her face. The only very slight criticism is that it is maybe a little bit too bright on her dress on the left, but I love everything else about it.

9, just because the details on the dress on the lighter side are a little blown.

Whoa. Madison is growing up into a beautiful girl. Can this beat the heavyweight Rowan? Sorry I didn't get to enter Laine in the Battle of the Blondes. :(
