Great shot. This looks like it portrays something very well loved and definately childhood. Angle and lighting are great. I like how you have his right arm even with the frame of the photo. Great job and good luck in the challenge.

I'd like more light from the front, to fall on her face. I like how the leafy background matches her clothing.

I love your old friend. Where the photo is concerned, I would have liked a bit more light on the subject and the chair (not a lot, we want to keep the texture of the fabric). Say hello (or hi) to your friend from me. 6 - marcvg

Just great work. This is nice and I'm sure has wonderful memories and meaning for you. Cute little doll. Just a tad bit dark but it's nice work just the same. Score 7 Justine
