Revisiting this site and its images. This has to be one of the most beautiful portraits I've ever seen. The focus, DOF, subject, and composition are literally perfect. I love it Judy. Well done.

Well done! Beautiful portrait of this lovely little girl. Lighting is soft and wonderfully done to show off her beauty. Her expression also captures the attention. Love that little smile - akin to the Mona Lisa smile in that we wonder just what she is smiling about. What does she see or is thinking: is she looking out the window thinking of all the fun she is going to have in the snow or looking out the window with satisfaction of the snowman she built or perhaps thinking of a nice warm cup of hot chocolate when she gets back in the house:-)

01/05/2010 08:36:17 PM
Lovely cute portrait. I am positive the parents are ecstatic over it. However for me, it just doesn't do it. it is a common style and offers me no added interest. The clarity and focal range is nice but I feel could be moved forward more. It is almost lost on the far side which we barely see. The tonal quality is nice but perhaps could be pushed a bit more.

Beautiful portrait. I love the light vignetting.

what a lovely portrait!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/03/2010 02:09:44 PM
Came back to bump this score up some . A very deserved 10 , everything about this pic is fabulous and the choice not to have colour is inspired. If this doesn't ribbon there is no justice a beautiful portrait.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/03/2010 11:45:14 AM
Magnificent! First ten I've given in a long time. BOL

Overall very grey but it works. I like the look on her face.

So very gorgeous! She looks so sweet, yet there's a little mischeif playing in her eyes and the set of her mouth! I hope you're hanging this one on the wall! 10

Wonderful soft light and tones. Truly looks timeless.

Lovely. A pro-quality portrait so well imagined and so well made I can't imagine this not ribboning. Best of Show.

This so far my second favorite portrait from this challenge
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/01/2010 10:37:47 PM
Great image. The look, the personality and the BW really make this an amazing shot. 10!

Edit: hmmm...I think this is Jutilda's image. That's Mackenzie above correct? I noticed you have a holiday greetings image in your profile! :)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/01/2010 03:28:33 PM
This shot is incredible... The crop is perfect. The emotion in her eyes is overwhelming. I think I recognize this little girl (and therefore her photographer, but I'm not 100% sure). Regardless, this is one stunning image. I fully expect to see this on the front page when voting is done. Beautiful work.
