A portrait of my daughter, simple setup: shoot through umbrella overhead and a reflector below and in front of her.

Great expression & a nice shot. Generally, I prefer a little softer look for children, & her head looks a bit Y to me.

She's adorable and you've captured her well. But you've boosted the contrast too much in post and you need to have the background farther away and less wrinkled. There is a balance between being sharp, but not looking hard, in this your processed it a bit hard.

Thanks, but the only things I did to it was to adjust the colors a bit in levels and a touch of USM.

Did you shoot raw or jpg? Try to lower the contrast in post.

I'll try that, thanks. I shoot both, but only tend to use the raw files when the exposure is off.
