    I haven't been here for ages. Can I ask for C&C on these of my daughter? Thanks.

    the lighting is better on her face in #1 than #2. can't comment on the colour her, but man...i'd kill for (consistent) awesome focus like that at 2.8

    First off ... can I just say how much she's GROWN since you last posted?!?!?!?! Both of your kids have really CHANGED! *sniff, sniff* It's hard to be a mom.

    #1 looks AWESOME!!! Light, focus, color! WOW! I love everything about this one!

    #2 looks a touch under exposed. it also looks a bit on the warm side, but that may be my monitor. Focus on both look really nice.

    Glad to have you back! Hope we see a whole lot more from you.

    WB!

    glad to see you popping in!

    the first looks good to me in terms of color and focus ... but I'm not a fan of the composition. I feel like the whole photo needs a little bit of tilt (not to straighten her, per se, but to give her background some tilt to go with hers). the second looks under exposed to me, did you shoot in RAW?

    I don't think we've met, but Hi

    I like the first. I think it's well exposed and fun! The second does seem underexposed and I wish you had a bit more with the catchlights. It almost looks like you used flash.

    #1 looks good to me. The one thing that bothers me a bit is the crop. Is this an in camera crop? I would take off some of the top, and possibly add onto the bottom, to get her eyes in the upper third. #2 does look like it needs some brightening. It should be an easy fix though. Maybe for next time you could turn her a little bit to make sure the catchlights are not in her pupil. I have his this problem before, when shooting in low light, so I know it can be tough.

    Welcome back Sue. These are great snaps of your daughter. The background is a bit distracting, but the first photo is exposed good, the second one just needs a bit of brightening up.

    Can't wait to see more of your photo.

    No not in RAW just manual. What does RAW do?

    RAW gives you more flexibility when you're editing - you can adjust exposure in RAW without much degradation to the image (when you adjust in jpeg, you start degrading the image more quickly).
