This is a fine strong image of a happy child./ The edge is just off the definition due, I would think, to a long lens and low shutter speed. However, not enough to do much harm.

She has a lovely expression but the frame feels a little cramped, to me so I'd prefer a slightly wider -- and maybe slightly squarer -- crop.

It's not as sharp as it could be and, as Paul says, this is due to using too slow a shutter speed for the focal length employed. You don't give much detail but I believe you're using a non-IS lens and I assume it's on a Canon DSLR with a crop factor of 1.6. As such, to get a sharp image, you should be aiming for a shutter speed of 1/(1.6 x focal length) or faster. In this case, that would be around 1/400s and the simple solution is to push up the ISO to 400. That shouldn't give too much noise and will let you use a fast enough shutter to get a sharp image.

Dave.

Lovely shot - what a cheeky smile! I quite like the use of landscape here - it emphasises the pigtails. Well done.
