What a beautiful child. There's something haunting about her expression and the lighting. Good detail in her hair and catch lights plus another reflection in her eye. Hand held at 1/30sec and no noise at ISO 6400! Quite an accomplishment.   Posted: 02/12/2021 01:19:37

Wonderful portrait. The angle of her face accentuates the innocence that you captured. The beads around her neck add just the right mixture of color.   Posted: 02/19/2021 13:32:55

Beautiful portrait. The lighting, her face and eye are beautiful and nicely done. I would recommend brighten up her face a little more and increase some more contrast. Well done.   Posted: 02/19/2021 18:58:19

Great image with beautiful lighting. The long lens gives you a great depth of field feeling. I like the moodiness of the lighting just the way it is.   Posted: 02/22/2021 14:24:34
