    Toby, this is a really nice portrait - one thing that bothers me
    though is the streak on the top left. Also the color overall looks
    a little bit cold. Other than that - great job.

    nice one mate, would agree with doxx - she's looks slightly palid but what gorgeous green(?)/blue eyes! At least the border gives it the impression that they are green!

    I love this shot, I do agree though, about the streak at the top left and also, the bottom left there are some scratches maybe? I think the color is nice, makes it look almost hand colored...very lovely child

    here it is, tho i previewed it and it is no where near as warm here as on my screen when i open in photoshop. gotta be the difference in color settings- web color vs. adobe 1998. the latter obviously wins, hands down. i just wish i could show you, 'cause it did make a big difference. i increased red saturation and it looks great from this end. at any rate, i found the feeback extremely helpful...
    thanks again, all.

    Glad to see you work with this because it is a wonderful photo - very endearing. The love comes through. Are her cheeks that rosy in real life? She's adorable.

    convert your pics to sRGB for web use, they will look much
    better in any web browser...

    edit: the picture looks much better already :wink:
