In my humble opinion, this is one of your best shots. Both faces are so expressive and so totally different. The father appears weathered by the insults of life and, with his head tilted toward her, concerned for his daughter. The daughter, who should be looking optimistically to her future, appears to be wondering what kind of s**t she is going to be subjected to. It's a masterpiece. You should enter it into a contest.

I'm not so sure that I would wax quite so poetic as Joe, but I like this portrait. I would lighten the girl's fingertips a bit, especially on her left hand.

I would actually darken her fingers, and lighten the father...

I think Tmoore has a point regarding dad. I played with it a bit and now think that it might look better with a boost of clarity and light on father's face.

Aye! Truth to be told, I did exactly that a bit later [Brightening] - you, guys, are totally right.

I would strongly object to Clarity, though :]

I can't see any difference in this one compared to the first.

I see it now; but when I flip between full size images, I could not tell the difference. Maybe I'm just crazy for contrast, but when I played with it, I brightened it more, then boosted clarity on dad and lowered clarity on daughter and I thought it made a more powerful image. Please tell me if you want me to remove it.

No need to remove it.
But for me it's totally overboard and unnecessary :] That "grunge" looks fake and doesn't make things better and there is no reason to make age contrast stronger as it is.
So, basically, we totally disagree on this one :D

I think it's a great pic, don't care for the Qbx version. The only part I don't like is the bright stripe by the girls head.

I think that's a really great photo. Wouldn't touch it at all. I agree that you did an excellent job in capturing starkly contrasting facial expressions between daughter and dad. I don't have a daughter, but I imagine that if I did, I'd feel very special about that image.
