Award Shortlist   


By eafy  
Having had no internet connection for the past 3 days, I've been suffering withdrawals...Must upload something!!! This is my daughter, Shian (pronounced shy - anne). Used blue channel, adjusted contrast, levels, cloned out distracting shirt she was wearing (Black and white stripes) and touched up skin tone. Sharpened a bit in the right places and voila.

Well I think it's a beautiful portrait Heath and the B&W format and framing suits me well. Not so convinced by the tree on the RHS - I may have been tempted to crop it out altogether ...
Good one.

The tree is a little distracting, but a lovely shot of a beautiful little girl. The B&W works really well.

I can only imagine what it's not like to have the internet on!! Gosh you poor thing!! Shian is such a cutie pie!! B&w works really well here too. I however, do like the tree in the background, it shows that she's outside probably playing in the park. Excellent capture of your beautiful daughter. Keep it up!!!!

She's so pretty and the toning is excellent. I agree that the tree is fine in the background, apart from showing she is outside, it gives balance. Very well done

The perfect children's portrait! Stunning tones, wonderful expression. Thanks for all the comments by the way. As winter creeps into London we are insanely jealous of you back in QLD. I'm a Sydney boy and Dana is from Noosa so really get that homesickness this time of year!

Gorgeous portrait, I'm in two minds about the tree first look i found it a touch distracting but at the same time it shows the surrondings. You could try to clone it out and see if it's better or worse.
