andyong,

you did nothing wrong. a crop would tend to bring her more into the forefront is all. so, it's just a matter of what you want to show off in the pic.

Andy, your daughter and your image is lovely. (had to google Loretta Lux to remind me about that look - happy you didn't choose that). The pose, the light, the color coordination all make for a delightful photo. Your wife and daughter are lucky to live with a pro photographer so they will have high quality family memory books.

Flotsam - your Lyttelton harbour picture - nice unity of color and great dynamic diagonal lines
- earthquake, wow.
orandz - cat grass - fabulous DOF and sharpness
- some flowers - love those bright colors and the unusual abstract framing - so much more interesting than a whole bloom centered smack dab in the middle of the frame
Craig - those frost covered pine branches are reminiscent of frilly lace
great blue heron - that is one amazing zoom
CJ Swartz - Oh! You are such a softie...leading those voracious ants away with that peach
Gary - yeah! That is terrific creamy bokeh behind that bug
Mr. Ratty - I don't like the thought of a rat but he's kind cute up there. You really caught a great variety of shots
bokcheelo - nice retouch, her skin is flawless now
andyong - she's adorable, love all that soft green

my first image is of some lit balloons floating on a lake, it was a weird night to say the least.
the second orange one is waaaaaaay out of focus but I really like the round bokeh created by the setting sun shining through the holes in the buoy
and the last is me farting around with classic still lifes again

nancy,

lovely pics the balloons one is lovely and a bit surreal. i like it! and the buoy, that's quite some orange going on there. but, the masterpiece in this lot is your last one. i've stolen it and am going to do some photo-art with it. did you set that all up? you just keep on 'farting around'

I set it all up. It's a mock up of a painting I saw in a restaurant.

if you wait a sec I'll put a SOOC version in the photo-art section. The one attached here is mixed with a texture...
