A lovely glow tho their faces. I like the contract between them. Having the light coming mostly from the right illuminates the fairer sister, and shadows the darker sister mysteriously. I wish they were back to back, with no chairs inbetween. The white space between the chairs is distracting.

I really like the expressions of you models. It fits their ages.

Very nice picture this. Both with such differing expressions. Someone is very lucky to have them as daughters. Wonderful picture that captures the theme perfectly. 10

Great expressions, pose and use of diffusion. I think that some fill from the left would bring out the dark haired girl's face and I wish you had cropped the bottom a bit, at least to remove the chair backs.

I like the pose in this photo. The lighting doesn't work well for me... I'm not really sure why... it feels cold maybe... maybe somewhat contradictory with 'soft focus' in my own interpretation of it.. your soft focus is excellent though :)

Very attractive sibling portrait - excellent title and use of soft focus - should do really well.

A good studio image with nice expressions on your subjects. This image would be improved if the girl on the left had the same lighting on her as the girl on the right. They are both of equal importance in this image.

I wish that the 'sister' on the left were just a little better defined. On the right you have the personality and expression of the youngster but on the viewer's left it gets lost a bit. Life is opbviously a bit more complex for her and it would be nice to bring it out. Lovely young women.

Challenge met....very nicely done. I think I'd of switched the girls. The one on the left with the dark hair is a bit lost in shadow and could use some more light on her face. The girl on the right is lit perfectly. I also would of cut the crop on the bottom a little to remove the leg (s). Minor points, this is really nice. Good luck in the challenge.

I really like this shot, but not they way it was cropped. I wish I didn't see the chairs, or the red do-da on the girl on the left's arm. Green tones are too strong too. Gave it a six.
