Charming portrait; I like the loving smiles, but it's the shoes, the bag and the umbrella that really make this image. First glance ... a good, candid family portrait. But look a few moments longer & you appreciate that this is a very clever, subtle work of high quality. I hope the voters give you the few extra seconds consideration that you deserve! 9

Very good shot. I hope that border was an accident, if not, make it normal next time. 8

wonderful shot. excellent lighting and focus. great overall composition. though the more i look at it, the more the placement of the handbag feels forced...unless of course this was a candid, at which point i will now shut up. But before I do...the border was too daring, and i find it distracting.

This is a very nice photo! The only thing I could offer is to crop the bottom 20% off and see how it looks. Cropping the toes off is a bit distracting to me. Also try cropping the left edge so the umbrella fills the frame. I absolutely love their expressions!! If these were my sisters, I would hang this one on the wall. Nice Job! 7

Large age gap? Looks more like mother and daughter. Closer in age would have had more impact I think. Cute pose though.

Really nice work. The shadows were exposed very well. The setup is great, with each person looking at the other. Headroom is a bit tight, but overall it is a great photo.

Nice, I like the colours/contrast/sharpness and their expressions too, excellent candid. However it´s framed a bit too tight for my taste, you both cut off parts of their feet and the top of the older sisters head.

I love this! Their interaction is so sweet and unposed looking, but in a perfect "posed" setting for a great portrait. Beautiful models too.

mom and daughter secrets? well done .
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/11/2005 01:03:38 PM
This is a great shot. I think it may be cropped a little too tight at the top - I'd like to see all of her head and some more of the umbrella. The expression is great! And I really like the colors. 8

Very cute image. I would have cropped the legs to keep the focus on the girls' faces, but still a nice capture.

Very sweet! Are they always like that? :-)

Very cute. Nice natural capture. Love the variations of color. The umbrella is a nice touch. On second review, I might crop out the shoes, as they are so bright, it brings your eye down and away from their pretty faces. I think that the shirt and the purse match is more complimentary to the entire shot. I'm still saying 7 though - it's good.
