You know that these days she could put most of that on a hard drive! Great image.

I like it a lot: the girl's look, the tones ... I would have cropped out the legs though... they look a little strange for my taste. What do you say?

Anyway, has my vote Smile

Great shot - I sympathise with all those who have to "learn the traditional way". Cheers, Von

You're right! I think it works also without the feet! I uploaded a new version Wink

Thanks to everyone and thank you Pete for HC!

Nice Idea and well presented - I actually find the noise (grain effect) quite annoying - but then I was brought up with film.

For me I would reprocess this as a much cleaner image.

Still for content - idea - and Composition you get a vote - Cheers

Ah, excellent. Within just a couple of weeks you have become one of my favorites on here. Such an incredible eye for the human being in its natural and cultural environment. Congrats on the HC.

PS. I think the feet are essential, they help her balance herself against all the knowledge piled up to the right of her (left for us).

This is superb. Both versions have merits: the cropped V2 gives a cleaner, more tautly-composed image, but the bare feet contribute to the body language.
Congratulations on the HC. A class act.

My first thought when watching - in the square. But not like. The first version is a bottom-up view, emphasizes the height of the stack of books, a massive table. I like it.

Regards.

Definitely V1 as it gives a sense of perspective more than V2. I would also suggest cloning out the wall socket, but other than that, brilliant shot

much prefer one, like the bare feet and details it gives, two is simplistic, strong, would work good for stock, but is less satisfying for me, with wall socket in tact

Definitely V1 for me and yes, lose the electrical outlet!
Actually, I like both of these a lot.
I prefer V1 as it's more balanced and the feet need to be included as they are a part of the little girl's overall body language.
The focus is spot on and the composition also works. The monotone suits it but there is some noise in there. Personally I think the noise adds to the shot but I can see why others might want to remove it.
Overall, I think it's a winner and deserves to do well.

Jester.

Edit; I've changed my mind . . .
. . . leave the electrical outlet where it is!
