nice expression, great color and framing but the eyes look soft and I think that hurts it.
Hmm. Her left eye is sharp for sure, but her right eye is out of the DOF, this is shot at f1.8, so I suppose I should have stopped down enough to get both eyes in focus. Thanks for the commments though!
No insult intended.
At this size, sharpness disappears into the pixels.
None taken. Pbase always adds its own special sauce too. LOL
It's very cute! Yes, the right eye looks out of focus but the one closest to the camera is in focus and that's what I've heard you should do if you can't get them both in focus. The lighting is very nice. It's soft which goes with the subject. I might have filled in the cheek facing the camera just a bit more, but it's not too bad. I understand it's difficult enough to photograph children.
The one thing I did notice when I first looked at it is her chin is cut off. That distracted me as I looked at her eyes and fell right out of the picture. I do like the close crop though.
I hope you don't mind the critique. It is such a nice picture. Good job!
The lovely, soft light is just pefect. I am all for tight crops, but I wish her chin was included. It looks just a little awkward.
Yeah I wondered about the chin. I have a couple with her chin included and I felt like it took too much from the top of her head.
This is window light only, 85mm f1.8 1/125" @1600ISO
Love the Canon 85mm 1.8 prime, awesome lens!
Thanks for the critque everyone.
