    Personally, I think the overall color is a little on the dull side. Did you try to alter the brightness at all or maybe changing it to black and white?

    Your daughter is very cute though!

    I'm not sure I like the blur/soft effect...Not for the whole image anyway. I'd like to see the eyes sharp at least. Also, it could use a little more contrast, IMO. She is very cute though :D.

    I prefer the black and white. I agree with Mike though, the blur is distracting.

    I like the B&W but the contrast seems a bit too harsh. Mainly her nose and the right side of her face.

    Thank you for all your comments.
    I see many photos of kids with the soft focus and I am trying to get the same effect, any ideas on how that is done.

    As for more contrast I tried to adjust the contrast in PS and I did not like the reulst too harsh. Is there a specific area to correct on the face?

    your comments and feedback are very helpful to me.
    thanks

    Dupe your image to a new layer. Gaussian blur that new layer, but not by loads. Change opacity of new, blurred layer to around 30%-40%.
