Its such a precious photo. The clarity is wonderful. I love the black and white. I don't like the white in the border. Rather than being able to focus easily on the child, the white border pulls my eyes back and forth from side to side. Weird, but it does. Beautiful child. I want to reach out and pull the strand of hair away from her nose :) 8

Good shot.

Ah, finally a child photo that is well done. Many child/baby shots are done too hastily and lack impact. Children and babies are very cute, but that isn't enough to make a good shot. This one is very well lit and presented. It carries the sweetness and even the feeling of the child. Excellent portrait and very good fit for the challenge.

Nicely done, I like the soft focus on the hands. Child at bedside, praying, shows hope quiet well. The hair infront of the face is a bit annoying, but I also like it in a way. Well done, should place highly.

Nice capture. This shot has an emotional quality, it takes you back to your own childhood days and nighttime rituals. 9

Very clear hope here, with all the talk about high key in the forums now this would be a good example. Peronaly I would have liked to see bit more of the girls face eather have her look up or move the camera down a bit.

Very nice. The only thing I see that is a bit distracting is the hair across her nose. Pose is beautiful. Lighting is perfect. 7.

A beautifully expressive portrait. Powerful and emotional. Your angle of attack, crop and lighting are great choices. The crop is excellent. The frame is elegant and nonintrusive. The desat is perfect. Good job all around.

I like the lighting and that her face isn't too dark, so that you can see her features.

beautiful image. my only gripe is the background. I'd like to see less texture and either have it significantly darker of lighter
