I would love to know your thoughts? Is my positioning off? Flash off? Composition off? BW off? Too much Vignette? She's only 3 but I feel like she looks much older here. I love taking pictures of her when she is just doing her own thing...

I think it's cropped a little tight. It would be nice to see what she's focusing on too. That would help tell the story. :)

Isn't it a little soft? And the girl should have a little more space to look into.

I agree with above- too soft and I keep wondering what she is looking at.

add more empty space in front of her face so we can sort of move our eyes in the direction she's looking at instead of just the edge of the photo
