My niece Kayla, again. :-)

Post Challenge:
Hmmmm, I chose the more dramatic processing because it really brought out her eyes and freckles. I didn't really see the sweater as a distraction. But this is why I enter, to learn. :) Here's a more natural edit of the same photo.

Personally, the dramatic processing appeals to me much more as well.. but we've always had a very similar taste.

Don't worry about that score.. This is DPC Free Study for you. I've had a couple of otherwise great photos (or, at least, very well liked photos), score amazingly low in free studies here.

You've caught a great attitude, and a very wistful expression. Feel proud about this one.

totally underrated Jennifer...perhaps the blown out sweater lost some votes...but she is gorgeous and beautifully captured

Very cute. Sweet model. The tight crop works well - in fact I wonder what it would look like if it was tighter still - maybe crop off the bottom two (or more) inches of the shot because the sweater is a bit hot so it distracts a little from the very well captured face. Again - great model beautifully captured - well done. 7

Such a pretty little girl with a great smile! I would crop out the lower portion of the picture as all that turquoise color is a bit distracting.

Beautiful model and photo. Love the freckles. I would like to see it cleaner, with less of a grundgy look, but it is nice as is.

Lovely expression on the little girl but the sweater is just too bright IMO.

Good eyes and smile on the model. The blue looks perhaps a whisker over the top.

Very cute! I almost wish that her jacket were brown, so her face and eyes would be the main focus though.

she's gorgeous, really nicely captured...perhaps there is a little bit of blown highlights on the jumper, but nice...her freckles are adoreable

Excellent portrait! There's something very special about this photo, probably the character and personality of your subject. Your presentation is very good, but your subject stole the show.

Very cute smile and intense eyes, but unfortunately the sweater is blown out and the end of her hair is out of focus. Still a nice picture and a 6 from me

Nice portrait. The sweater is a tad blown out but her face and eyes are well exposed.

a very good portrait. The sweater seems over exposed, maybe that was intentional, but I find my eyes going to that instead of the girls eyes, which IMO should be the subject here. Very crisp and great DOF.

Good. I love the way you brought out the freckles.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Wow she is so precious and the colors are perfect. Maybe a little less crop on the top and more on the bottom? It is well done and you captured her personality. Good entry.
