    Oh yes!!! Much much better, alex. This is exactly how I imagined it should have looked. Your daughter is stunning. I can see why she likes this portrait. Well done.
     
  3. I like that a lot better Alex. Your daughter is lovely and should be getting you to photograph her more often.

    I agree...the changes are just what was needed. The image really worked out well. What beautiful eyes!!!!
     
  5. Alex, I didn't comment on the first go around but I do like this one much better. It reminds me of that series of greeting cards that are desaturated colored cards that are almost bordeline black and white. A very sophisticated look to this shot! Well done!
     
  6. Much better. It now gives a focal point to the shot and adds to some composition. The viewer's eye looks for recognized shapes and areas of focus. This places the centre of attention right where it needs to be but retains the feel you were originally going for.

    David.

    Much better! Her eyes definitely stand out so much more in this version. Beautiful!
