Wow, what pretty eyes! Your lighting looks good, but I would have composed with the dead space to camera right. She's leaning that way, and you want her leaning into the picture, not out of it. I'd also clone out the stray hair that's in her right eye.

Looking again, you also cropped her arm at the elbow, which is never good. Her left hand is also curled in an uncomfortable way. These are minor things that you should correct in the future.

You do have a very cute kid there. Keep shooting her!

Super focus and lighting....shame her left arm is up there.
This is one pose that you could have center framed - if her left arm was down.
Good call on the cloning of the stray hair and elbow crop..

Thanks everyone :) I have gotten a ton of CC on this one! It's one of those ones that I fell in love with and had to share everywhere! lol

The pose was "unintentional" so this is more of a candid shot. I was only about a foot away from her and she was sitting there and looking at me and I just hurried up and got the shot! lol

My 2 kids are NOT posers and I'm not sure if that is good or bad lol! I guess it depends on how you look at it. So after a lot of people mentioning it, I am slightly disappointed with the crop and how her arm is pulled back. I definitely agree that it is awkward but, my daughter is awkward lol She is 5 1/2 physically but mentally and with the way she moves sometimes her "level" can go down to that of about a 2 1/2 to 3 year old.

Thanks again everyone for the comments :) I appreciate it! I am going to see if I can get the strands of hair out of her face without messing it up... I'm in the photography lab at my college now and have a ton of help if I need it lol

Sarah, since you have image editing on, I tried a quick crop to see how you like it.

She's a beauty. The little strand of hair in her eye concerns me. The skin may be a little pale. I'd have just a bit more color in her face..

THanks Ed. I'm not too happy about the hair in her eye either but to be completely honest with you, if I try to clone it out, it will look worse lol

So, here is a crop (someone suggested a tighter crop, and this was my take...) and I made an attempt at cloning the hair out of her eye instead of compositing the other iris... How did I do?

I like the clone job. If I didn't know you had taken that hair out, I doubt I would ever have known it.

Love the crop and nicely warmed up in the edit. Lucky to have such a natural "model" right in your home. :-)
