Trying to manual focus with little one moving around was a challenge. I am looking for further feedback in regards to processing and how the skin tones and overall photo has turned out for my own improvement. To my eye the end result appears ok, though there is always room for improvement.

I think you got it. Good focus on the eyes. Lighting is good -- maybe a little hot on the subject's right cheek. But I don't think a parent would make this observation. He (she?) looks like ready to offer stock futures advice to someone off camera. That's a different look. :)

I'm not sure why using manual focus would be a choice with an active little one. Unless you saw it as a personal challenge. There are those of us who don't perceive being able to use manual focus as making a purposive statement about a photographer's skills -- especially those of us with old eyes.

Joe, thanks for the feedback. It was intentional to use the manual lens as a challenge. She is a charmer and like the cameras too.
