Cute gal! I guess we both did well with our daughters this week! Your lighting here is so bright and cheerful--befitting, no doubt, her personality! Congratulations from your Utah neighbor!

I rated this picture quite low, because I thought it looked overly airbrushed. THe skin on her face looks full of makeup, and the rest of the image looks over-sharpened. Sorry.

But, when that is said, I accept the fact that the People has Spoken, and I can see why many people would like this image.

Good work, and CONGRATULATIONS

Good job Sonifo! Nice win. You "only" used a 500W and 60W light for that? Amazing, it looks like a professional shot. Can you describe your lighting technique, placement of the lights, special equipment, etc. for some of us who don't know?

Thank you all for your wonderful comments. I didn't think I was going to get 1st. Being a cliche' and all. My daughter is thrilled to see her picture up on the home page. If anyone is interested I have posted the outtakes on pbase. http://www.pbase.com/image/14549830 And click next from there. My favorite of the photos is Chandraya 4, but I didn't think it would do good in the challenge.

Thanks again.
Sonja

Really great lighting! The skin almost looks plastic and has a really interesting texture to it. Good job!

This is just darling... One of my favorites for this challenge. The only aspect of the the photo that bugs me are those taps... Not a big deal at all, but plain black shoes wouldn't have been as distracting. Great Shot!

Is she Irish, though?
Very pretty little girl! Lovely Portrait. . .
Composition is nice and simple
Idea is nice and original, well executed
Fits the Challenge, that's for sure!
Lighting looks great
Focus is excellent
Colours are fine
P:osturing of hands are just right, smile is great, eyes are smiling, what else could you ask for? This all adds up to a very striking/emotional St. Patrick's Day Portrait that you should be proud of, and I think it richly deserves a. . .10

Wow, this one is stunning within the time restrictions. I don't care for the wrinkles, but I'm glad to see them throughout the shot (intentional).
Nice work. 9

good set up. nice pose and expression. great lighting. May I suggest a little tilt of her head to her right shoulder? Cutie.
Also.. her features are a bit distorted...i.e. did you take this at a wider angle, or maybe you were too close to her? Not overly pronounced, but I noticed.
