Description should read:

....huge brown eyes which are beautiful.

Apologies on grammar.

Hi Gav. I have a 'thing' about eyes in portraits and this little girl has great eyes. Lighting is spot on as well.
Like It.

Lovely portrait. One little idea - the edge of the white t-shirt is lost which makes her neck look elongated. Maybe there is a way of processing to retain edge along t-shirt. Nice high key though with great focus on the eyes. One other thought is the highlights in the hair on the forehead - perhaps these could be muted a little to throw even more emphasis on those eyes. Click, Martin

Very nice. Would like to see this in colour so we can see the colours of her eyes. John

Although I love unusual crops this is just a bit too tight for me. But a super portrait, you are getting good at these, look forward to seeing more. K.

Magda, glad you spotted it cuz I knew it would look odd without. It nearly fades into insignificance, but its still there to hint her posture.

Great Eyes, Gav. Click -Rab

BTW Your right about the little monkey and although the literal translation of petit songe can be little thinks. It means "little dream"(daydream) so the two names are

little dream
