Bud, I didn't notice your finish until just now, and it's certainly deserved. Those eyes are haunting.

I like this shot, very moving eyes. The noise doesn't bother me at all though I feel a tighter crop of the left frame could strenghten the shot even more than it is now. Well done and a beautiful little girl.

I thought this was yours - it got a very good score from me in the FS. I really like the way you've caught her eyes, her look. Wonderful DOF.

I thought this may be yours! I was going to leave a comment to that effect during voting (got an 8 from me by the way). It is very lovely.

The noise on her face gave me the impression of too much texture where it did not belong. And then her eyes were smooth and clear so something seemed a bit odd to me with the combo of the two. This probably is something that could not be avoided. But beyond that, her eyes really pull you into the photo. They are haunting but border on the edge of slight mishchief too. A very interesting capture.

Great portrait aguapreta ... Really like the way her face comes out to us from the dark background and her sidelong glance. There's fire and intelligence in her eyes...

7 - Good image. At first the fact that she isn't (or seemingly) looking straight into the camera distracted me, but then.. I think that actually makes this more unusual and takes it to another level. Perhaps a crop variation may have made this image even stronger, not sure.

The pathos presented here is almost unbearable - incredibly beautiful in its poignancy.

This is a beautiful portrait, the lighting and eye contact make it a very powerful image. It seems rather grainy which I think detracts slightly? Overall, Fantastic!

what a pretty little girl. I see a lot of grain here, is that intentional? (or maybe just me??) overall a good composition and great caputre

Great light. Love the eyes. Cropped a bit tighter and I've given a 9. As it is, 8.

What a sweet, little girl. She looks like the poster child for 'Feed the Children'. This is haunting and compelling....and your editing/lighting are beautifully artistic!

The image is powerful, but there is a fair bit of noise in this...eye contact is superb 7
