For those mentioning or asking about the fingernails... This was a completely candid shot. Not set up. If it was set up, yes, I would have made sure her nails were clean. She had just been picked up after a weekend away and her mother had also picked up donuts on the way home from getting her. Her actual hands were cleans, even though her nails weren't.

I enjoyed this much more than the isolated dessert studio shots. The human element always does a better job of pulling me in. How can you not smile looking at that sweet face working that donut? Great shot.

Ok, but why are her nails full of black crud ( i don't have children perhaps they always look that way )

Good pose, focus and choice of focal depth. The background could be darker or differently-colored to give more depth. It could be more intriguing with a tighter crop.

This is a tough challenge to vote. I'm torn between "what are you trying to do here" and "what do I expect here". Further complicating matters is the question "what would I do here".

What I would expect would be a technically strong piece of eye-candy that would present the dessert in a way that I would want to at least sample it, if not order it. Along these lines I'm looking at technicals: backgrounds, distracting elements, exposure, sharpness. I'm also looking for creativity, imagination, and originality, which can make up for less than perfect technicals.

So, where does this leave me with your image?

Too cute!

Voted earlier coming back to comment.

There is nothing like the enjoyment of a tasty donut...especially if it is bigger than your two hands (that is one problem with getter growing bigger, the desserts from childhood memory seem to shrink;-) ) The lighting is great on your subject - you have nice even tones on the skin and some nice highlights in the hair. This is an above average shot (7 to 8 range) but I have to wonder if you managed to capture the twinkle in the eyes as she raises the donut up ready to take a bite - that would have been the stellar shot.

Yummy, great portrait and incorporation of your little girl into this one. As someone who shoots his own children quite a bit I can certainly apreciate this. my only little criticism would be to clean your models fingernails before shooting anything involving hands, I've been guilty of forgetting this and is why I point it out. Other than that the colors here are nice and the eyes are sharp as they should be. Cute shot all around.

this is great - she looks as if she could eat it in one bite.

I know that "kid pix" don't always score high in some of these Challenges, but this one just tickles me no end! I love that there is even some of the sugar guck on both of her hands. Well done.

Cute...love the sponteneity...only negative is the dirty nails. My eyes are drawn there because it's the only blemish. Very cute
