Beautiful girl, eyes a bit overdone for my tastes, but enjoyed the pictures. Think I prefer the second shot.

Nicely done!!! I have to say that I love both pics!!!

The only thing that catches my eye is the colour of the lips on the first image (the close-up)...I would tone it down just a touch (but that's just a personnal opinion).

P.S.: very cute kid you have there!

I agree with Gary about eyes in the first shot.. whites are too white and not enough detail, otherwise very nice, both of them!

hi dawn,

love the first one and wouldnt change a thing.

the second lacks something (to my tastes). it's a good shot and i like it, but it's framed a bit off and lacks...something. i did a couple versions just to give you some ideas (and to show off a bit ). (it is a good shot).

Cute!

Really Nice photos!

First Photo:
Overblown highlights in pick headdress...Bring them back! Then lighten the the whole photo and bring back the contast and proper exposure to the face area. Attention will then be drawn to the face...not to all that pink. Next draw attention to the eyes by lightening the irises and whitening the highlights... "season to taste".

Second photo:
Again...overblown highlights in the dress... bring them back!

Thank you all for your comments, and for the critiques and suggestions. I have been showing these off around here, and am having folks actually want big prints of the one with feathers, not even knowing who me or my daughter are - lol. I put her on my business cards, and boy are those fish a biting! I have already got two newborn shoots planned, a maternity shoot, just had two decent orders for prints from recent shoots, and got a BIG order on my recent venture into wedding photography. I am really excited. Can't wait to go to WORK - lol.

Thanks again everyone!

Dawn

you're welcome

you dont always have to trust my work, but always trust my eye the first one is a case of photography extending into art...it's more than 'just a shot'.
