Thanks Gordon.

There is also some on her lips and I was wondering whether these should also be removed.

Your daughter is beautiful and so is your image. There are a couple of specular highlights on her mouth (one in corner and one a little further in) that I would remove, other than that it is just super.

No! The ones on her lip make them look round and wet. Uhh... girls like to have that look. :rolleyes:

The dot in the corner of her mouth makes it look like she has drool issues.

Really nice shot by the way - I'll bet she likes it.

Beautiful portrait, Pete. The others have offered a few tips on how to refine the image, but the image is very nice. Your daughter is a very lovely young lady.

Very nice

She's what, all of 14? Looks like she's hitting the gloss pretty hard, but that's all part of their coming of age. Jees, kids grow up so fast, don't they. Lovely shot, like her pensive downward gaze, and the light softening worked very well here. As the others have said, take of the "splittle" specular highlights at the corner of mouth, and the one between her lips too, and might as well do the one at the corner of her right eye while you're at it! :wink:

Thanks everyone

Your comments were very constructive, I did some further editing and had it printed in a lab. Unfortunately, for some reason, she doesn't like it!

Did she told you why she didn't like it? I have a female friend who hates every photo taken of her. Even she looks beautifull on pictures. But it is a great shot and the advice given is also where i can agree in.

Greetings,
