Greetings fromt the Critique Club
Hiya Doug!

Composition
Gorgeous little girl. Her hands clasped is adorable. The grass at the bottom is a bit unnecessary, I think. Just a small issue.

Color
The colors are all there and this meets the challenge well. There are LOTS of colors here - it's a great idea.

Lighting
I like how you can see her face. Sometimes with hoods and hats, the light is obscured - but you have done a good job of keeping details visible. I like that the lighting is muted, looking like a good ole rainy day.

Subject matter
C'mon. It's almost cheating this kid is so adorable! Perfect subject.

Overall
This is the best kid under the umbrella shot I've ever seen! :) Seriously, I really love this shot, and I wish it had gotten over the 7 hump!

Very good job here. The colors meet the challenge as with many other images in the challenge. What really makes this stand is the priceless expression on that sweet face. It's composed beautifully too. Definetely one of my top favorites. 10

We've seen her before! Still cute. Well composed. Colors seem a little blueish which distracts from her face. Still an 9

Very nice... the colors, exposure and softness are super. I'm curious as to the camera used. Great that there are drops on the umbrella. Would have loved to see her holding it though(I am so picky). Also would have prefered no grass showing.

I love this shot -- that nice diffuse cloudy day lighting that works so well with portraits, and the primary colors are used subtly enough to be really interesting here.

What a wonderful picture. I wish that I took it. It is vivid, expressive, and fun. I just wish that the little girls eyes were looking at the viewer, it would have changed it a great deal and made a stronger connection. Great work, lovely child. 10 Morgan

Precious shot! Only thing I would change is a tighter crop on the right side so that the girl isn't in the dead center of the frame. Other then that, excellent work! 9 -danny

Beautiful. I wish the little girl's face were a bit brighter, but this one gets a 10 from me anyway.

a bit overly sharpened.
05/12/2003 10:38:07 PM
She's a cutie! Yellow is vibrant; I wish the blue and red had similar strength in the photo. Very nice portrait!

This is my favorite but I wish the child, including her rainsuit were just a tad brighter than the umbrella.....10

OMG. She is too cute. Love the colours in the picture. How can I give her less than a 10. Jacko. 10

Wonderful.....a little princess. Darling. Good shot. Love this.

What a little cutie! That yellow of her jacket is really nice against the blue in the umbrella.

cute shot.... might have been worth using a little more saturation.... good luck, Todd.
05/12/2003 08:18:01 AM
Really nice. Shame she isn't looking at the camera (or the sky) but still very good.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/12/2003 06:07:44 AM
Very nice. One of my favorites here. The beautiful girl is not looking straight at the camera, seems to be thinking of something else, I like that! Lighting, colors and focus also very nice. Only negative thing I can think of is that stray grass at the bottom!
