the finger sneaking in on the right side and the cutting off of just the top of her hair on top are elements that might be able to be improved.

Proud, pensive portrait. A little more softness would have been to my liking. (Only my opinion)

I'm guessing this was a spur of the moment shot but, with the exception of the womans hair, you could not have posed it better. It has a cozy and warm feeling. Great shot.

Nice portrait subtle soft focus works well, just wish the hair wasn’t cropped at the top.

I love the two faces here. They are beautiful. The picture tells a story of contentment and love. The soft focus adds to that well. Wish the woman's hand and arm were visible coming around the little girl on the couch - it would pull the composition together and add to the "story." The line in the wall behind in distracting too - is it a curtain that could have been moved?

The soft focus is good without going over the top, it sets up a nice atmosphere and mood, which is also helped by the golden light coming from behing them. The only things I dont really care for are things that can not be controlled in such a candid shot like this, such as the pacficier/dummy and the either cropped out hand or the uncropped finger. It's good to see that your choice of subject CAN be something more than just a snapshot. Nice image.

This is a very sweet image, trusting and loving. The lighting, colors, and contrats (both in age and in texture) are also very pleasing.

Nice shot, great colors. I don't like that moms head it cropped so tight. Other then that this is very nice. The light is spectacular.
