I liked the feel of this one, and maybe the writing should not be there, so ignore it if you feel it distracts from the image. all feedback welcome, good or bad, Thank you

Only work done on this image was to remove her big sister that was stood next to her back in the original image.

I think the only way in which this could have been improved would have been a touch of backlighting to lift her off the background. Here white hair thingy is sort of floating in mid-air.

Lovely shot though.

Hi Ian, you are of course correct, the problem I had with her hair and the background was that her sister was stood next to her obscuring part of the photo, I tried to remove her but as you noticed that in doing so I also lost some of the girls hair near the yellow bobble, it seems like a nice picture, so I thought it was worth the effort trying to salvage it. not perfect but I am reasonably happy with the result.
Many thanks for your comments everyone.

I think I'd have been tempted to get rid of the yellow bobble altogether. It's a lovely picture though, and very nicely done ...I'd never have known you'd removed someone.
Are you entering this is the technology competition?

Strange thing Keith, I emailed this to the parents without the text and the border, and for some reason, I only seem to do it to images I put on here, go figure.
I do like your blunt, straight to the point approach.

Hi Anne, never thought about losing the bobble, I think I left it in because I have no background to this image and it does show the end of the hair, even if its only what our brains interpret. not good enough for competitions, so a no on that one.
cheers all

I have already folded under preasure and no longer put my name on all my photo's, the borders cant last much longer, maybe I need to do one last one , just to get it out of my system. might even stick my name on it for good measure.and a double coloured background just for the sheer hell of it.

She is beautiful and so intent on what she is doing, love the way she is poised ready to dial. The colour of her jumper compliments her skin colour well. The dark background works well, her hair clips adding that extra touch. Well deserved EC.
Congratulations.

This is a great shot. The little girl is really engrossed in what she is doing. Technically perfect. Well done.

Don't know how I came to miss this, sorry.
It's a wonderful shot, with composition, expression colour and theme all culminating in something to be proud of.
Don't know about back lighting stuff, but on my screen her dark brown hair in held in the bobble against the black backdrop quite noticibly...perhaps I still haven't got the same colour settings as everyone else.
Anyway, congrats, and superb!
