    Another attempt at a portrait... am I improving at all? I'm certainly more frustrated lately.

    yes i definitely agree. the eyes are beautiful and they stand out really nicely. I like how it's not completely posed....it's candid, kind of. Nice.

    If you haven't improved, you were very good to begin with.

    Wonderful job! I love this... it captures the happy mood and innocence a three year old has.

    I like this photo, especially the shallow depth of field. Makes you look at her expression more, but the rest is not so out of focus that it takes away from the image or anything. Its just right. (may sound confusing lol)

    Why did you convert to B&W if I may ask?

    Also see if changing the contrast helps you unless you wanted a flatter tone range.

    I played with both color and black and white. To be honest, since I'm still very much trying to get a handle on digital post processing I tend to fall back to what I'm comfortable with in film and that's black and white.

    I have played with changing the contrast, and I'm fairly happy with the flatter tone range since it help accentuate the eyes... I notice when I up contrast it takes some of the focus from them.

    I am still playing and I appreciate your input. Thank you very much.
