    Top'uns not a keeper.

    Otherwise, a great little set and well #3 is brilliant with the reflection in the glass! Especially good considering it was all 'natural light'.

    Agreed, the top one is one for the album, althought the rest worked wonderfully as well.

    Kinda the opposite of what I thought, her neck looks craned and a touch uncomfortable!

    But that's why we're a forum, all diff'rent styles :p

    Fair play mate, she's your little girl!

    Don't think I was being catty, but as some chump 'on the internet' the top one looked a bit off-kilter to me.

    But then, I'm just some clock-socket on the interweb!

    Nice.

    I'll tell you something, you have trouble getting adults to pose like this. Well shot.

    I don't think you were being catty at all. I'll take lumps where I deserve them. I'm still learning after all.

    Thank you!

    I'm usually very complimentary, I don't make personal attacks!

    Unless they're provoked. Consider me you're younger, better looking and larger-handed Trump :p

    I thought the same as Andy re the first, as she is looking away from the good light. I'd probably crop feet from 2nd but do like last two and they are definitely keepers

    Hiya - what a little cutie - you've got a great model there. Nice set - last one is my pick of the bunch. They do look a touch soft to me though - I do know it's hard with kids - they're a bundle of energy and never stay still long enough, but in any portrait you should always focus on the nearest eye to the camera to get it pin-sharp. Have you done any pp on these - sharpening, contrast etc? One little trick in pp to give a shot form and depth is to go in to levels, take the middle (grey) slider and push it to the right a little and see what happens - don't move it much - this takes a bit of practice to get your eye in but does make a real difference. Hope these few tips help a bit - keep at it mate :) Cheers, Mick.
