This was my favorite picture of the whole lot. Glad it got a top ribbon.

When I saw this picture I was actually thinking it would have been one of the best for the "eyes" challenge, but looks like it went over here just fine. Great pic.

Beautifully done. Congrats on the ribbon. Zoe is a beauty!

It scares me now to see what you have in the "eyes" challenge. :)

Congratulations. It's an excellent shot.

Nice to watch Zoe growing up through your challenge entries.

I'm curious - how much better is the 10d over the *ist-DS? I'm trying to justify the leap, but can't come up with an argument that I think will carry the day with the wife.

You didn't lose a step during your short sabbatical. I didnít look at this challenge during the voting, so it was a pleasant surprise seeing your beautiful daughter with a blue ribbon. Congratulations!

Love the skin tones here! Is that a beauty dish catch light? Congrats!

I think this is a photo everyone can relate to. A most beautiful take on the challenge. Congratulations on winning, Garry.

Congratulations. This was my personal favorite, but I thought a portrait of a child might not do well. Glad to see I was mistaken!

Beautiful shot, congrats on the blue

ahhh congrats!!!
haha i just left a comment on this picture but as soon as i hit the next button for the comment to register the site was refreshing to calculate the votes and what not so my comment didnt register.

anyways... it basically said that she is the most beautiful little girl!!! and that this photo probably would have placed really well in the eyes challenge aswell but i guess now there is no reason to wonder.

CONGRATS ON YOUR BLUE!

Scary Colour for a bear ;) Nice portrait, thought there might have been more of these.

With this much editing I was wondering why you didn't take out the white glare in the eyes? Wonderful shot...fantastic blue eyes (except for the glare) still, I have it a 9

Sweet face. The reflection in the eyes could benefit with some touching up.
