A lovely study of this happy wee soul, Ann: can't comment further as portraiture is a skill I have never managed.......all I would say is that it seems a jolly fine shot un every way to me.

Lovely eye contact and the crop is excellent, Ann. I like the mono (but is the contrast just a tad low?? thinking out loud here, 'cos I've never done a portrait in my life!!).

I thought it might need a bit of contrast too Dave, but it looks better this way.... Wish I knew more... Smile

A super portrait Ann - good tones and eye contact - a very small criticism - possible a little more around the eyes for them to stand out a tad more? Dunno not sure on portraits

Nowt wrong with your conversion, Ann, it is spot on in my mind. Your timing was perfect to capture her expression of pure joy and delight. What contest did she win?
