Even better if she was sitting in front of a plate of peas or something with mommy pointing as if telling her to eat them. something like that. Just to give the photo a story. Hoestly, TONS of my pictures don't have stories. Just trying to troubleshoot why it scored low.
HTH.


I so agree with you about the name, Mommy in the title Daddy on the shirt would've made it stronger and more appealing :) Thanks for you suggestion, it is indeed a wonderful point,
Regards :)

I might have thought this a bit of a shoehorn, but wouldn't have ignored how technically good it was. It's very well composed also -- obviously not candid, but your subject is relaxed and acting natural and having fun. And she's cute. Probably a five or six from me if I had voted.

ike !!!! too many sub 5's for a photo this well taken even if some us did'nt think the line theme was as strong as others in the category.

how can mine lines score so much better than yours (even if mine is rather more obviously and unimaginatevely liney?)

Thanks Steve for your honest feed back, kind people like you makes staying here really worth it. I thought the lines, either straight or curls are obvious, but I think I was mistaken,
Thanks once again and see ya at HDR :)

Very cute! Learning to be a model so soon! The kid looks like she enjoys being a little ham. Might be getting beat up by others for the lines not being the major subject.

Cute. Nice lighting. Wonder what a black background would
have looked like?...

Cute kid, nice photo. Is this really a "lines" photo, though?
