Shot of my niece, as a flower girl at her aunty's wedding.
I'm not sure what the fuzzy white thing behind her is. I can only assume it's someone else in the background.

I've tried to be subtle on the editing with this one. A little bit of Dodging, colour and sharpness adjustments. I did remove a big Dora the explorer badge from her jacket, as I felt it did distract from the rest of the image. I don't know how well this will score, as portrait images don't often do well, but I really liked this one, being a little more emotive than the average portrait. Hoping for between 6.0 and 6.5 from my first entry with my new 5D. :)

The shot is great, soft focus and colorful works lovely, too bad you chose to tilt it like this...it doesn't add much, but its just my opinion.

her face is almost perfect. some of the blurring has a random rather than selective feel to it.

you've captured a very subtle expression on the young girls face. Well done!

Lovely, sharp job on her face. Color is good and bokeh is good. The wavy white stuff in the rear of her is distracting, though. (not voting)
