One of my challenge favorites, without reservation. Lovely use of what presumably could have been a dreary backdrop. Technically fine photography, but it's your ultra-gamine model who really makes the photo fly.

Nice portrait. BW conversion is excellent, and I like the candid nature of the shot.

Nice cute portrait. Focal clarity is nice, contrasts are ok, could be pushed a bit brighter on the skin tones. Overall its a nice portrait just not enough for me for this challenge.
