One of your nicer shots. I think I'm anti the comic style...

Heh, sucker! It always sucks to tie and be on the bottom. Even when we are talking about 32nd and 33rd...

Charming indeed. Great job with the lighting and composition, the choice of tone is also fine. Only nitpick is the white areas on her right cheek and hand. Could be just a tad softer and not so bright.

Wonderful portrait! I love the feeling you captured. To me the right hand being slightly out of focus is slightly distracting.

Wonderful portrait. She has an earnest smile and it's not cheesy. Beautiful eyes. The tonality is great with nice lighting. Maybe a smidge harsh on the cheeks and nose, but no points off for that. She's lovely. 7

Very nice capture. I like the crop, the expression, the tones, and the sharpness.

I take it you cloned out the staples? :P The lighting seems a tad too bright but otherwise perfect.
