not much to say here. first time using background paper and gels. so it was a fun learning experience. didnt get very even color at all, but better luck next time right? also first time using the high pass filter in post processing. its kinda nice. made this heart out of flowered shaped soap petals on floral wire. wanted my daughter to look like she was balancing it on her finger but that was hard to do and shes not one for taking directions too well( the apple doesnt fall far from the tree.) so instead it just hung next to her. thats it nothing too fancy.

cloned out sensor dust and a small piece of flash stand leg.
color balance masked off skin
new background layer gaussian blur masked off girl and heart
selective color
new background layer high pass filter on opasity masked edges

Too much pink throughout the photo. Maybe a diffrent color in background.

She is adorable! I think this would work better if she were standing bc it looks as if she has no waist.

I love the background and the expression on her face! I don't care for the legs of the stool showing. This would have been perfect on a swing with her shoes on the ground below her or possibly a white wicker chair. Either way she needs her shoes.

Too posed looking loses the cuteness too me.

excellent image...perhaps the chair is distracting and it would have been better if she was simply standing 7
