Portrait of a young icelandic schoolgirl, previously seen in my submisson to the triptych challenge last month. Actually this photo is from the same session. Converted to BW in Lightrooms, also cropped and balanced the tones in LR before exporting to PS where I used levels, curves, reduced noise, resized, sharpened, framed and saved for the web.

Absolutely beautiful! I think her placement in the 1:1 crop kept it from scoring higher. Still her face, emotion, and movement, make this a favorite of mine.

Feels very honest, real. Somehow feels sharp and soft at the same time. Great job! One of my top three. A nine for you.

All the kids where you live are simply gorgeous and full of character, and you manage to capture that oh so very well, particularly in B&W!

Really lovely portrait. The best portraits are like this in my opinion, almost candids. Nice tones. Well done. 9
