Your niece is a beautiful model - but she seems a little bit sad here...
Personally I would be tempted to crop off a bit of the lefthand side and the bottom of the frame - keeping all the attention to her lovely face.
What do you think?

Thanks for looking Jacqueline - I had tried cropping, but wanted to keep her hair in - might post some of the others which I have cropped more closely another time.

Lovely portrait with a contemplative expression and I like the lighting. Not sure which version I prefer, but if pushed would opt for the colour portrait.

A lovely touching portrait - excellent - well done. You have a beautiful niece too!

I definitely prefer the colour version but not because it is in colour. If you notice in the colour version, the hair is darker on the left hand side. This means that my eye is drawn to the area of greatest contrast with is her lovely face/expression, thus making it a stronger image for me.

I also like that way you have kept all her hair in.

I definately like the ruddiness of her complexion - I think it is in keeping with her age and demeanor.

I particularly like the gentle way the light falls away on the side of her face, sculpting her cheek gently.

You have kept her nose inside her faceline as well as her left eye; there is not too much white of her eyes showing but I would not want any more for my taste.

A delightful portrait - one of many more to come I hope.
