  3. I like the eye-level perspective, always a sure way to enhance photos of children. If I may make one observation and one suggestion...

    I know it's not always possible but always try to make eye contact with your subject. Well, ,not always but you get the idea. Being able to see her eyes in this shot would make the image more "personal".

    The image is a bit flat. There a pair of Actions floating around called "Defog" that you might want to try. They will increase the "pop"... brighten the highlights and add a little contrast, so to speak.

    If you can't find the Actions, they are easy to make.

    Defog Regular= Unsharp Mask / Amount 20% / Radius 60 / Threshold 0
    Defog Light = Unsharp Mask / Amount 14% / Radius 40 / Threshold 0

    Give it a try and see what you think.

    You have a good eye. Keep practicing.
