    Today I did a shoot for my cousins' little girls. Emma is absolutely angelic - here are a few of my favourites. Comments always appreciated.

    #1... My favourite... just noticed that 'sharpened' looking section of hair - not sure what's going on there... I did no sharpening???? what the????????

    #2... also like it in b&w but think colour wins????

    #3...

    #4...

    She was a bit of a 'mover and a groover' - was too busy looking at everything else but the camera!!! I also had her newborn sister and my other cousin's 2 little girls ( will probably post more tomorrow!)..... needless to say I have a whopping headache!!! What a challenge...feel like I have run a marathon x :heart: Jemma

    Great shots Jemmy!

    as for that little section of hair, you can try softening it a bit with the unshapr mask tool or even add a bit of a blur just to that little section then sharpen it...or just clone pits and pieces over it for a more natural look...it doest bother me all that much....but those are just some quick ideas for ya to try out

    Adorable shots.

    That funky bit look like a moiré pattern to me. It probably looked fine larger, but when shrunk, the lines of the hair got to the right size to introduce the effect. There are different ways to resize, including bicubic, etc. Try different ones and see if the effect goes away. If not, you might have to try the other suggestions.

    That section of hair doesn't look like it's over sharpened to me. It looks more like a compression artifact, or like you resized to an odd number of pixels. Is it there in the full size image? I'll see that type of artifact if I'm viewing at 33% or 66%.

    Color definitely wins on these. Love the composition on #1.

    Thanks guys... just printed it @ 4x6" on my printer and it came out beautifully... Looks like you were right about it being a moire pattern Mark & Robert - must read up on this as I haven't even heard of it!! For Photobucket I resize longest side to 500pixels... that's right isn't it???Thanks again x jem
