A quick shot of my daughter while waiting on her cousin to show up for Senior Pics. All I did was darken it a little and clean up a few stray hairs on her face. This was one of my first shots with the 50mm. C&C would be nice.

Her pupils appear constricted...was she looking toward the sun? Is a nice shot though. ;)


The things you do for yourself die with you, the things you do for others live forever.
A man's worth should be judged, not when he basks in the sun, but how he faces the storm.

As a snapshot it is fine. The person on the left is distracting from the subject. You've chopped a bit off the head of the subject. I would have preferred a portrait orientation for this shot allowing you to remove the distracting background somewhat. Focus looks okay - possibly could use slightly more DOF. The light is flat but as a candid that's okay - you get what you get at times.

Thank you for your comments. She was looking into the sun.

Next time have her turn her head more toward camera so you get whites on both sides of her irises.
Lovely girl and lovely eyes.

(Disclamer: I'm a total noob at portraits) Your crop shows a lot of environment and personally I don't find that car to be a very interesting environment, maybe a crop that focuses more on the face, or reshoot out in nature? :)

+1 agree with above.
Lovely daughter and beautiful eyes, get outside and do justice to both.


Tons of enthusiasm, loads of kit, limited skill...

sorry, eyes look really unnatural to me. the catch lights, perhaps lens distortion?? she is obviously lovely, but this image makes her eyes look too big!

No distortion, she has big eyes.

I actually like the original photo more. I'd crop the person in the top left out and perhaps leave in the arm since it's not THAT distracting. Very beautiful daughter and amazing eyes. Good job!
