I really like the angle, the lighting and the colours and even the DoF - really great shot!

It might just be the contrast and colour, but her skin looks a little too processed for my tastes. If you did airbrush it, I'd considder dialing it back a notch.

Le me say again tho -- fantastic shot!! :)

I really really like this shot too. Great angle, nice catchlights, nice lighting. Like RMH said maybe try a little less skin smoothing, see how that looks in comparison.

May I ask how old the girl is? I have an 8 year old booked in a few weeks and I'm struggling for ideas. The mom has been very vague about what she wants (i.e. "just a nice shot for grandparents, nothing special") and I might try something like your wonderful shot

What i really like about this (aside from the excellent execution) is the concept itself.

If you read tips on photographing kids you will always find 'get down to their level' somewhere near the top of the list.

This is an excellent example of breaking the 'rules' and making something that really stands out. Given the thread title, clearly that was the point, but it took a while to roll round in my mind :)

Thank you,
For some weird reason , when I uploaded this picture it did something that make the picture look over processed.
It's not like that in the original file.
I posted other pictures in the glamour section and had the same problem but it less bothered me on those because they were high key
In this image it's more obvious because of the low key
It's most probably because of the compression or something but I did notice this as well
Thank you for the critic though

I like the angle and think getting the feet included made the shot.

That's exactly what I thought. The feet are adorable. Love this picture!

Did you use the short end of the 24-105mm or was it some other lens ? Very nice !
