Great picture ... as usual. This pic shows clearly that scores are not always fair, but do not worry you are great anyway !

The one the only Manny Librodo I presume. Nice work here whoever it is, I could possibly say that I don't like the reflections in her eyes, but I don't know if I am looking at her sorta funny. Beautiful child and expression and great use of DOF. Sweetness personified - in the child and the photographer who made such an image. 10/10

Would have liked the picture to match the title, she does not appear smiling or happy in her eyes. Is a lovely picture and I think well worth bumping up in score.

Do I see a blue ribbon? - 10

01/18/2006 08:36:26 PM
I wonder who this belongs to? :)
What can I say? Excellent photo as per usual! The whisps of hair really do make the shot, and I love how the background colours match her skin tones.

I've seen this pic in your pbase account & really, really , love it. It's deep & vast & that's just from the eyes. I think there is a distinct flavour to your photography that most dpcers are familiar with by now. I suspect that this will ribbon & rightly so. 10.

great sharpness and colour and great connection of eyes to the lens...love the composition as well 8

yes - I see it - the smile may not be on her lips, but is definitely in her eyes. Nice capture. I truly feel the eyes are the most important feature in a portrait shot. Eyes speak more than words.
Beautiful skin tones. The fly-away hair adds to the image favorably

Bella expresion de la niña!!
exelente ML
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/16/2006 05:31:24 PM
Reflections in eyes are distracting, but color tones seem great---at least on my screen. Might have been a little better if the composition put the face a little more to the right with a little less unfocused area to the right.

Lovely portrait. Great eyes. THe lighting is spot on. I like the hint of reflection fro her earring is nice. Her hair wisps over her face add to it Gorgeous.
