    Can't decide between #1 and #3. In #1 the eyes are excellent. In #3 the general pose is very relaxed. #2 has a little too much emphasis upon the nose, I think. Good shots, Colin.

    Thanks Rob,

    It always amuses me when I post more than one shot in a post -- nearly everyone mentions favourites

If I were their mom... I'd certainly be thrilled and wanting to order several prints.
    Thanks Mary,

    You can say if you like (I like #3 the most)

    Would be nice to have parents knocking down my door for prints / canvases - hopefully one day

    You have changed the title of this thread, unless I had too much NZ plonk last night. I seem to recall trying to change titles before and it didn't work. Is it just a Mod/Admin facility?

    Hi Rob,

    As far as I know, yes - I needed to change it to add more photos of others.

    It's FDR, and shouldn't it be "Great power involves great responsibility"

    He also said (getting back on track) "Happiness is not in the mere possession of money; it lies in the joy of achievement, in the thrill of creative effort." or are we talking Spider Man?

    Hmmm... I wasn't really quoting... but in my head it sounded more like Yoda... but the order of words is wrong. Maybe it is Spider Man.

    Mr. Southern, the Administrator is going to get mad that his thread has been hijacked.

    It's OK - At least spiderman & star wars attracted more comment than the images!

    Ummm... it looks to me, if I scroll up to the 3rd comment down, which is mine. I commented very thoroughly... you ignored it. So, I had no choice but to go to Star Wars and Spider Man.

    Don't fret, Colin! I've come back to look at this precious girl, several times. The first one - there's something very delicate - porcelain but real - precious (as in priceless) - see, I can't quite get the word and that's why I haven't commented, yet. She's like a wisp and delicate but warm and sweet at the same time. Particularly in the first one but I haven't had the chance to really figure out why, yet. I think it's just simply, the lighting combined with her eye contact. It's much more engaged in that one. Also, the catch light is so soft! I love these!

    Thanks Katy,

    Looks can be deceiving ... lovely kid, but pretty "full on" when she gets playing with my daughter

    The light source for this shot is over 3 feet wide, and she's right up against it - hence the soft catch lights and shadows. In fact, the white you can see IS the light source.

    Nice shots, Colin!

    I have one comment I like them all, although I think the left side of the face is too dark. I would like to see SOME detail on that area instead of total darkness, showing me the transition from the hair to skin. That is just me though

    And it's good morning from me!
    I think the close up works really well with this age and as Katy said, beautiful skin texture.
    On #1 the wee bit of background in the top right corner distracts me, #3 is the stunner for me.
