WOW I was really not expecting so much appreciation & lot of thanks to all the commentators & voters.May be I was not serious while choosing right title for this image.

You know her,right? She is my daughter Mansi.This is one of my easiest entry taken while playing with her. The only flash used is vivitar 285 HV bounced from the wall that may have something to do with her pupil size.I really love her expressive face & eyes.

A beautiful girl and a beautiful portrait. Excellent work, Nilesh. I love the chipped nail polish - she's a typical little girl in that respect ;-)

Those eyes are truly wonderful... but what makes me smile is the half on/ half off nail polish. adorable. Well done. Congrats on your HM and a beautiful keepsake of this time in your daughter's and your life.

She seems thoughtful more than curious. Challenge aside, it's a beautiful portrait.

The pupils should be larger, but I know it's tough to do with a kid. If you are using flash, try to keep the ambient/modeling lights low for a minute or so before the shot to allow the iris to open.

An excellent shot. Taking one point off for the fingernails which look to me like some of the nail polish has chipped off. Maybe? 9

Great picture, I love the expression and those eyes!

Very nice image. Not sure if the kid looks very curious... maybe inquisitive... but looks a little more indifferent or bored... unless that was a joke that I just completely missed...

Great expression and very well exposed. The eyes are freaking me out though. They look a little too big. Also, there seems to be far to much iris and too little pupil - probably a by-product of over-lightening the irises. Otherwise, terrific shot!

Hello again. She's beautiful and a great model but it looks as if she's been chewing her nail varnish this time :¬)

Aw, this beautiful little one from that other challenge. Ps. I thought you should have been top 10 for this image. Anyway, great tones, great lighting, interesting use of composition. And such big beautiful brown eyes. top 10 in my eyes.

WOW nice shot, the eyes are GREAT

The eyes completely make this photo amazing. Just the look in the eyes is enough. Through in great lighting and a wonderful pose and you have a winning combination.
