I love it. Makes me happy just to look at it. My only complaint is that the butterfly shape seems a bit uncertain of itself. Maybe brighter and with a bit less contrast, to make it stand out more from the mass of faces behind. I don't know. Would 9/10 be fair?

I was so happy with the good advice I got on my last photo that I'm submitting another of my very favorite portraits, a Cuban preschooler.

I like the composition and the pose but not keen on the weird colour thing going on
8/10 for composition and pose, 4/10 for processing (just my personal taste though) = 6/10.

Thanks, Jack!
I like the colors, you don't, and that's fair. I wanted to make it look like a painting.

To be more specific, I guess it's more the way the black areas have this weird brighness/shine to them. Is it what's known as cross-processing? Not sure. I know some people like it but not my thing. Personal taste though.

I loved the image as soon as I saw it, but it came out of the camera with horrible colors. I worked and worked on it, including using a Topaz preset, and that's where the blue highlights came from. Unexpected and not realistic, but liked the effect. By the way - I don't pose my models, I don't do studio shots, I just catch them as I can. This girl knew I was taking pictures of her, but her mind was on the ice cream cone. I think I caught the innocence of childhood in this shot.

You absolutely did. Great pose. I too hate posed shots. From my experience, the difference between men and women (not talking about photographers- just people taking family pics with their phones etc) - women tend to tell everyone they're taking a photo and make everyone pose together in a group, and men just take the photo of the scene how it naturally is...

QUOTED IMAGE
9/10 - I really like everything about this image, the light, the composition and juxtaposition of nature and science/technology. I took off a point because of the artifact in the center right of the image. I thought it was a smudge on my monitor until it scrolled with the image - once seen, it drew my attention. Is that a contrail segment? Great image! -Bill

Thanks a lot for the compliments! Yes, it's actually a contrail. I thought about cloning it out but decided I liked it as a small detail of the scene.
