    No, it's definitely soft. Look at her eyes. Either the camera shook or you missed the focus just a bit. Manual focus, or auto?

    I like the pose and like you said, I think the girl's a natural. Good expression. Did you take any other shots of this pose?

    sorry guys i didnt have my coffee at the time of reposting.. kind of a scatter brain..

    check the link now.. i copied and pasted the exact same link as before (the low low res image)

    let me know now haha..
    photomodelnetwork.com - Eric Chiarito

    and yes i have more shots of her.. not in that pose though.. generally only take 1 shot per look and edit it .. helps keep the book more interesting i think..

    you can see more work i did of her there are 3 total.. just click "next" or "previous"

    my question is though .. have any of you ran into serious problems shooting kids where you just... COULDNT get the shot?

    I thought it was done with the newer Lensbaby 2.0 with a smaller aperture disc, or that it might have been post-processed to look like the newer, high-res Lensbaby shots, with an almost totally sharp center area, and then a lot of fall-off in resolving power at the edges of the frame. It's a "look"...I thought the look was quite acceptable....cute kid, looks like she can strum a guitar...sort of a pleasing "real child advertising shot" look...looked okay to me...
