I could've swore I commented on this before. Well, it would've gone a little something like this: "Absolutely beautiful! This is an amazing capture of an amazingly beautiful child. Six 10's from me and all my multiple personalities!" :)

beatiful tonal quality; she looks like she's glowing. the shirt is a bit too bright - I have no problem with whites in a photo, but in that part of this composition, they are distracting. I like the texture of the background, which is complex enough to keep some interest while subdued enough to keep the focus on the subject. the sharpness of the hair is well done also. the pose and expression look genuine.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Beautifully done.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/29/2006 10:30:39 PM
I think this little girl is getting famous on DP. You need a new background though! Haha, same wood in the background I've seen for my 2nd time. Dont get me wrong, great shot. 9.

Stunning. Great model and great expression. Perfect depth of feild, composition and use of color. I am very jealous of your portrait skills!

I love this photo. i have returned a couple of times now to have a closer inspection in the hope that i can replicate something in the same vicinity on my own. Its an absolute winner and out of over 800 shots an absolute stand-out, which is quite an achievement. irrespective of where you place (and I can only hope it is in the ribbons!), you have done an amazing job. 10 (obviously).

this is a great color portrait!
(i know i've seen a similar shot during browsing some photographers portofolios today...)
the sweet smile on her face, the background, the colors: evrything seems to be perfect in that shot
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/28/2006 02:42:29 PM
Ah, I'm glad to see this made it into a challenge. She's just so cute and the contrast of her hair to the background really works. The post processing is well done, too.

She really does work this picture well. Lovely portrait and good use of thirds.

Great candid portrait. Love her hair color and her smile Everything! 8!!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/22/2006 01:31:39 PM
I like the way the paint splashes on the wood behind her are so similar to the color of her hair. The saturation is pushed past my normal preference, but I really like it for this image. 9, good luck.

This is awesome! I love the others you did of her. Some day we will meet on a North Georgia G2G and you can give me some pointers on lighting and all because you have really got it down! <10>

Remarkable color. Love the softness and composition. 9
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/20/2006 02:39:20 PM
Well this looks familiar; I always did like it. Her coloring is in contrast to the background's, but the orangy-rust back there complements her hair, bringing everything together.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/20/2006 09:21:53 AM
What a pretty little girl. Great colors, great job.

Isn't she beautiful! What a perfect portrait!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/16/2006 02:26:32 PM
As she looked at mom walking away, she realized she had indeed gotten away with eating that cookie before dinner.

Colors are great here. The reds against the background door really make it stand out. Sweet, innocence with a hint of mischief.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/16/2006 11:03:28 AM
This is an excellent photograph. I love the intensity of her expression and the depth of field is flawless. A 10 from me and I'm adding this to my favorites.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/16/2006 09:07:35 AM
Excellent photo! The red of the hair against the blue of the background is great, and the expression is really nice too. I love the contrast and vibrancy of this shot.
