I forgot to change the camera back to RAW+JPEG after clearing the CF card so this pic is only in JPEG ( I will not forget that lesson again). Would love some feedback. Thanks.

Almost a really good picture.

The problem I see here is that the arm is in the way of part of her face and most importantly in the way of the toy that she is fascinated with. If it were taken from about 20 degrees to the left it would have been dramatically better.

Kids are just about the hardest things in the world to take pictures of. They move too fast and they couldn't care less whether or not you get a good picture of them until about 15 years later. (external link)​tj12345 (external link)

The highlight on her right shoulder is a little blown out, but the picture is otherwise so good that it does not hurt much.

The only thing I would recommend would be to tighten up the composition by cropping the left side up to her hair.
