Critique Club:

First and Oscar for your daughter's stellar performance and a well-earned 4th place in the challenge for her father!!

Meeting the challenge: Excellent

Composition: Very well done with the eyes in just the right position. The angle of this shot ads some depth and impact to the photo. Capturing the body language as well as the facial expression also adds to the meaning and impact. All very well done.

Technical quality: This would have been a shot if spot editing could be done that the eye on the left could be a bit darkened, as it almost looks like they are two different colors, but obviously you stuck to the rules. The muted shadow is nice, and I for one did not mind the lack of extreme contrast...don't think it's always necessary especially with the soft focus. JMHO. The border works well and no post-processing errors noted. Your dof works well in the shot. Very good quality for the shutter speed.

Creativity: This is a great shot, and did not need a lot of originality to be good. I don't know how you could have pulled this off with increased creativity and wouldn't have subtracted a score on this issue.

Overall: A very nice photo, and in my opinion wouldn't change anything but the eye shade in a printable edition of the photo. Sorry I couldn't add anything else really new to what others have said.

If you have any questions, comments, or other please feel free to email me. Kandice

I like the crop and the subject. Maybe a little more contrast or levels, but you've got my vote.
