Beautiful classic shot! No embellishments or tricks needed. Gorgeous models and wonderful connection between them. I would love to be able to take shots like this - clean and simple.

I couldn't agree with you more. I only have 2 slight niggles, It would have been good to see both of the left girl's eyes (hidden by the hair) and her right hand doesn't seem to be doing anything, she could have put both of her arms around her sister/friend. Hands really need to be dealt with in portraiture whether you are shooting kids or adults. These are only small niggles and it is still a fabulous, classy portrait.

Andrew, I agree with your comment about the hand, but I quite like the hidden eye - it gives it a feeling of spontaneity

A lovely portrait, well lit and with such wonderful expressions. I do dislike the hands at the bottom of the shot which I find awkward and distracting. Crop the bottom quarter off for a much stronger shot that concentrates on those fascinating faces.

Ken.

Thank you all for the comments. I agree about the stray hand, this is why it's great to get other's opinion. I'll watch for that in future Smile This was one of the first tests I did with my new black backdrop, always use the kids as guinea pigs Smile
