    This is a pic of my little girl that I really like and I would like to print.

    I am a bit concerned that the skin colour may be a bit too cool. Please let me know what you think.

    I would also like to know what your thoughts are on the overall composition.

    This pic has had a bit of PP but the size is straight out of the camera.

    Keep in mind this is just one opinion..

    On your first question: I think the skin could be warmer yes.

    On you second. In my opinion which isn't worth much... it is cropped too tight.

    I apreciate the feedback Mysteryscribe. I was trying to emphasize the fact she is sucking on her toes in the pic.

    HAHA I was looking at her toes first going... wow she has a messed up hand.

    I like the pic personally. Skin could be a little warmer but I like the crop

    As it appears on my monitor, it is an excellent shot. I wouldn't change anything. I think the skin tone is very realistic. I wouldn't make it any warmer for fear that it might look too contrived. If it were mine, I'd hang it.

    I like the tight crop but the colors do seem a bit off.

    I like the pic as well, although I didn't realize that was her foot. I was too mesmerized by her eyes to even notice her hand...er, I mean foot.
    She is just beautiful. :)

    Yeah I think if you zoomed out a bit more people would see the rest of the foot and figure out that they're toes. I overlooked that as well. Without the foot reference, the toes aren't noticed.

    Also portraits typically attract a viewer to the eyes so the toes part isn't the focus and might contribute to the fact that it's been missed by the viewers.

    One other suggestion is to sharpen the eyes a bit. You could throw a quick mask on... select the eyes... duplicate the layer... apply sharpening... you get the idea.
