An excellent photo! Very arresting, esp. when opened up to full size. The composition as well as the contrast between the two people is ideal. And the fact that the face of the mother is completely covered by the little girl's, with no detail showing at all, really really adds to the picture. Great job!

An arresting and very creative image. Striking contrast between the soft typical little girl and the spiky non-traditonal mom. Lovely soft lighting and subtle skin tones. Nice colour palette throughout. Effective DoF choice. There are at least a couple of comments on Beauty in this image too, and with her glare, the little girl seems to be challenging us to be open to seeing them.. Very well done. 10.

I love the juxatoposition of the cute kid and the punk mom. Really makes for a nice contrast.

I love this one! The clarity is stunning, composition is brilliant, and there is some really lovely bokeh going on too. And somehow the "new" element of the mother and the "old fashioned" element of her beautiful child really combine to make this not only gorgeous but interesting and unique. Excellent work!

Don't know how many times I have viewed this shot now. I like how different worlds come together in this one. Beautiful.

Great shot. I would surely have wanted to show this in black and white: the image would be more about the expressions and textures, and I think the colour tones, whilst perfectly well caught for sure, to me seem to have nothing to do with the power of the shot. Also, people's reaction to black and white is more likely to give an image a quality of seriousness that this image surely deserves. Wonderful work.

Nice tender moment you've captured. Skin tones are excellent, but this image has an almost comical side to it. That is, the contrasts between girl's soft hair and the spikes of the mohawk. I especially like the way the heads line up. I think you could have cropped out a great deal on the left side and bottom.

A photo with so many complimenting elements.
I really like the contrasting hairstyles between the mother and the child, the intimacy of the hug and the sharp aye of the girl. The lighting is very good and the DOF is perfect, something that could so easily been done wrong.

Top quality work. -10

Nice pic but is this really 'mother' and child? Looks more like 'father' and child. Good clarity and sharpness.

She is so sweet looking. And as contented as she can be. I love looking at her.

Interesting image, but almost too much going on. The little girl is a cutie, but her mother's hair seems to draw the attention (because it is so different fromt he norm). The bright green in the back ground, although OOF, is still so bright in too draws away from the foreground. I like this image, but somehow find it somewhat annoying as my eye bounces around too much. Although that probably doesn't make too much sense, it's the best way I can describe it. <7>

Best portraiture in this grouping. Terrific emotional energy here. 9.

The hair on this mom makes this picture like the child is resting in a flower. I love the color of this hair although I suppose I wouldn't love it on my children to be frank. Great shot catching the athmosphere.

Neat contrast between mother and child, maybe a better moment was available? the little girl seems to be between expressions...but good photo, i like it!

I think I would have preferred black and white so that the bright green background wasn't fighting for my attention...

The truly beautiful thing about this photo is the expression on the little girl's face!
