You have a lovely daughter and the lighting aspect seems fine as it is. I don't know if you are going after a low contrast, washed look in your processing or not, but since you have image editing turned on I will post one I boosted the contrast,saturation and hues a bit with a little dodge and burn thrown is as well.

As I stated before, you have a lovely daughter and keep her modeling for you, I have four daughters and it's a real pain to get them to pose.

My sister, the professional baker and cake decorator once told me that my camera takes great pics. My reply was that I thought her oven baked great cakes.:lol:

I agree with Thorrulz. In your original image, the hair almost looks gray and washed out. If you want that washed out look, maybe you can tone down the saturation from Thorrulz' image a little, but keep the contrast a little higher as it gives more depth to your daughter's hair and brings out some of the features in her face.

Great capture and lighting though. I like the cropped frame and intimate appeal that the image has. You have a lovely daughter. Mine is 5 and is starting to get comfortable posing in front of the camera. It only lasts a few frames though and then she starts acting silly.

Thanks for the compliments and the edit which looks really good my original looks so cold next to yours.
I was originaly going to go for a grungy type look as Kirsty likes that type of thing "she plays the drums and loves music" I started playing with this image to see what I could achieve.I do tend to like washed out tones in images for some reason. Somewhere along in the edit I seemed to loose site of the grungy look. I think I kept the hair lighter as Kirsty does not have pink hair so it was looking way to weird when I added more saturation.

Yes maybe there is a middle ground between the new edit and my original.
