My little Alia. Her mommy started to walk away from her and the tears started flowing.

Thx for the votes and comments.

Her body of work is truly disturbing to me as a mother. Your image is awesome though- your processing looks exactly like Greenberg's.

Leo, I gave this a 10 and was hoping this to ribbon! Was eager to see whose shot this is. Your portraits have always been top notch on lighting and post-processing.

Leo, this is such a fantastic work! At my opinion it deserves a ribbon!

This is such an outstanding job of faithfully emulating Jill's lighting and processing, and to do it and the get the essence of the *subject* too, all in all, is amazing. I'm surprised this didn't ribbon. I believe it deserved to.

I'm not a fan of Greenberg's work at all. Or maybe just of Greenberg lol. This is a great copy, you meanie :D

I wish I knew what particular photo this is emulating.
The photo is fantastic.

Phenomenal work. Lighting is terrific. Only thing I can pick on is the reflections in the eyes make them look weird.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

How awful that you made this child cry all for an internet photo contest! I hope someone makes you cry, you big meanie.

I trust no baby was harmed during the making of this picture. Your processing matches the original. Good stuff.

Edit: cloned out a typo.

Even though I don't like the original photographer of this style, I am not going to penalize you as you did an excellent job of recreating her look. Technically excellent!

I cannot resist from giving this a 10. I simply see Jill Greenberg here. A true tribute to that amazing photographer. You have matched in every respect - lighting, processing and the kid with tears ;) Marking this a favorite. Can't wait to see whose entry this is.
