    Hi Joanne,

    Congratulations to your daughters team for winning.

    I love her name and this photo is awesome. Keeps me looking at it for longer than 2.4 seconds. I love the black and white, the expression and spontaneity of the shoot. The frame has been perfectly filled. I'm only left wondering her overall posture. Is she laying down?

    Just add 'MacKenzie'

    I wondered if the lighting was just a bit too flat, but I defer to the more experienced 'people' shooters for opinion. That aside, it is a wonderfully crafted image in the sense of the quality of the capture, the composition and the processing.

    I think the sharpness, exposure, composition, and expression are wonderful.
    A wonderful capture of a wonderful moment

    Even when she is making a funny face, she is beautiful!

    Excellent and well captured.

    Funny, no, but a rueful expression that most photographers would love to capture.

    Clearly a great subject, (congrats on the win too), the exression absolutely makes this shot. Have you considered cropping even closer to take out the background. A bit like you see the media do and just include from the chin to just above the hairline.

    Such a shot would happily sit in any national newspaper running a story on your daughter and the win!
