She's just a natural poser! I have slightly changed the levels of this shot to emphasise the lines and cropped it, but I didn't need to change it much!

You have done well at cropping this so that the subject fills the frame diagonally. I think it works well that the eyes start in the lower left and go up and right. Then, on the right side, they are brought back down following the water droplets.

The skin tones look okay, but the bath tub and water have a pinkish cast to me, and that gives it an unnatural feeling. You have captured the falling water very well. The focus on her face seems a bit soft, though. Since that is naturally where the viewer is going to look, I think it probably should be very clear. As a result, it gives the feeling of being a touch off, focus-wise, even though the water clearly shows that is not the case. Some of the water is a bit blown out, but I don't know if that detracts from it, or adds to the feeling of "brightness" in this shot. Just out of curiousity, did you try this in black and white?

This shot immediately makes the viewers (well, most of them)smile because they remember their fun times in the tub, or their childrens' fun times. It is definitely a shot that you will want to save.

Best to you in future challenges.

That's cute. Lighting seems a bit bright, color looks fine.

Nice idea but a bit overexposed.

White balance is off. Cute kid however.

I like the golden colors of the baby and the pinkness of the tub along with the "crystals" of water.
