I was able to get my niece to pose just long enough to get this shot. The picture was hand-held and I didn't want to go above ISO 800 so I under-exposed by 1 stop. After correcting the exposure and white balance in Lightroom I had to reduce the Noise in Noiseware Professional in Photoshop. Then I resharpened, increased the contrast a bit and exported it to JPEG. I'm hoping for a 6 :), we'll see!

cute, but would like to see either more of the girl, or more of the roses.

This is a cute image, but the main subject seems to be the girl and not the roses, even the focus is a little off on the roses.

Beautiful eyes.

A little bright to the side of her head which tends to lead the eye away from her face, but otherwise a very pleasing gentle portrait, of a very pretty girl.
