This is wonderful, I love the country feel of the little girls face, I hope you are taking a lot of her!

Nicely done. I have just started learning how to edit protraits and I like what I see here. Hopefully you got shots of the two models separtly also!

Lovely relaxed smiles. The framing, lighting and backdrop are all good.

This is such a pretty portrait. I like the background and the fact that you didn't cut off some part of their heads. Great job.

Nice portrait and composition. The background and coloration used makes for a nice contrast and emphasizes the subjects well. The Neat Image seems a tad overdone, but nice capture nonetheless

Beautiful capture, nice skin tones and the weathered gray bg works great. Good luck on this sisterly portraiture.

Peaches 'n cream! Beautiful shot. 8 Just a little too much space to the right for my taste though.

This is a lovely shot, it just looks a little over neat-imaged (in my opinion). They are both beautiful though!

Cute young ladies. I do not like softened look of their skin - it makes faces unnatural.

This looks a little bit overprocessed, somehow. Prettily posed, though.

Excellent portrait

Pretty girls, have the feeling you've softened the image too much making the little girl's features overexposed with dark shadows around eyes, otherwise a very nice and expressive image..

I like the pose and the background but I think it seems a bit overdone with neat image - they look almost plastic to me. I think I'd like it with a bit more natural "flaw" if you know what I mean.
