I took this photo of my beautiful niece and OF COURSE two days later they announced the fairy tale challenge! :) Since I missed out on entering it in that challenge, we'll see how it does in this one!

This is a good example of where DPC diverges from the real world. I'm sure you and her parents LOVE this shot, and I'd bet everyone you'll show it to outside of DPC will say "what an adorable picture!" And your commenters loved it, too. But to score well on DPC, you have to come up with things that blow away fellow photographers who have seen a zillion shots of cute kids. One thing you might try is lightening up her eyes. Compare the original of my best portrait with the final to see what I mean. I did that using a "soft light" layer - you can read idnic's excellent tutorial to learn how to do it. I generally use opacity changes to lessen the effect vs. her blurring method, so play around and decide how you prefer to do it.

cute baby, I might lighten the skin tones on the princess, or maybe just desataurate them. I bet her parents love it :)
