    Haven't posted in awhile. I was taking pictures of roses while visiting my sister in Missouri. My great-grandniece, Anna, wanted me to take a picture of her. So here she is. C/C welcome. Thanks for looking!

    You really need to tighten up on the DOF reigns in shots like this.

    I think its a cute shot but would look better if it was a close-up portrait. My eyes keep looking down at her sneakers instead of her.

    Thanks for the input. I agree about the sneakers and that's the kind of critique I was looking for. I didn't notice the sneakers at first.

    I like the first shot as well. Its nice to see the personality and character of the person, and I think her shoes help tell us that story.

    I agree, I think that the shoes are part of the whole "take a picture of me" aspect of it, that's how she looked when she wanted her photo taken and that's how I think she should be portrayed. Sometimes things like this are a personal opinion.

    Thanks for the input. I agree that the shoes are part of the picture and that it is an opinion. It's nice to have the opinions of others.

    Unfortunately, how will you crop the first picture to make an 8x10 or 5x7?

    Marian... I don't think it can be. It has a great chance at an 8x14. (I played with it a bit). Hopefully there is some room on the sides in the original.
