What a cute picture! But its not only cute, but also has captured a great moment and feeling. Composition is great, with the window framing your daughter but no waste at the sides. Your daughter is framed perfectly with this composition. The awe captured is wonderful.
The blurred background is perfect and really captures motion, while still maintaining some detail, to let the viewer see what she is seeing.
Exposure is perfect here, with the brighter light from outside not blown out at all and the lighting on your daughter is soft and natural, which shows good detail. Focus is great here, lovely and sharp on your daughter while keeping the feeling of motion outside. Tiny bit soft on the fingertips but it isn't too distracting.
My opinion
Lovely picture and one to frame and put on the wall. Should be shared with all the family! Congratulations on 10th! Good Luck in the next challenge!

Thanks all for your kind comments!
I'm really surprised that it scored this high, but still I've got to learn a lot, I guess!
For the ones interested - it's my daughter, Kora... she loves travelling!

Wonderful photo. He seems to be really enjoying the scenery flying by. He won't remember this but the photo will prove he took a train ride. Love how you let the train window frame the photo. You couldn't do much about the angle of the window.....Yes you could have. It would have been better had you gotten down and taken the photo up at an angle with the window so it would frame the photo perfectly. Hind site. Still a good shot and worth an 8. PTL

It's a lovely picture capturing an intimate momemt between the child and his or her journey in space and time alike. Frome here to there but also from childhood into the future. The subdued light in the train contrasts well with the bright exterior and the stillness inside with the movement outside.
