    my critique:
    1: I love this one - it really makes me wonder what she's thinking and/or looking at

    2: cute....but i'm 50/50 on the hair in the face....part of me thinks it's cute fun, and part of me sees it as distracting....

    C&C per req:

    1. Noise aside, this is a very nice image. It's well composed, and well exposed. Her skin is a little warm, looking rather like an extremely bad sunburn on her upper arm. What sort of post-processing did you do on this image?

    2. A cute image, great expression her face, but a couple of minor compositional issues. One is the patch of grass in the upper LH corner; always try and make portriat backgrounds as homogenous as possible. The other is her right forearm. Bisecting limbs lonitudally is never a good idea; I'd suggest cropping that out. As far as the hair; I think it's fine. This is a candid portrait of a child playing, not a studio work.

    Just my $00.02 worth - your milage may vary.
