    My grand daughter borrowed my camera......

    when we were at her parent's home for Chirstmas.
    She took this photo of her sister, and did her own PP as well.
    She's 16.
    How did she do?

    So what have you now got on order to replace the camera that's now been taken over by your grand-daughter?!!

    Like us all when we started out, I think she's gone a bit too far with the PP. But that's fine. It's called learning. Good onm her for picking up the camera and trying it in the first place.

    Very nice attempt and good editing (I like contrasty images, of course, where you can lose detail in parts... some competition judges don't agree with this, though)
    I would suggest to work on the composition: the focus seems to be on the bit of hair covering the ear... Zooming out and a bit to the left she'd leave more space for the subject to look into.
    I could add more suggestions but she's only 16 and ... there's plenty time to tweak other things.

    She's saving her money for a Nikon D7000 - She thinks my D5000 is TOO OLD!

    To use a UK expression. 'There's many a good tune played on an old fiddle'.

    Just ask Mr. Stradivari.

    I would say the first shot is good. I assume the second edit was to smooth the skin which has worked but it seems to have lost a little texture and colour/saturation along the way. But this doesn't really matter with the B&W version.

    The only extra point that I would make is the background is a little noisy particularly with the last one. I would just run a little bit of Blur Brush over these areas to 'clean them up' a little.

    Nothing but the best for her then eh?
    Perhaps you should show her some older pics and then ask her what type of camera she thinks were used, oh, just even 10 years ago!?
    I get caught up in the technology too....
    Wonderful to see someone young show some interest in learning about it.
    As far as how she did - I think Donald covered it pretty well. Great for a first attempt.

    She herself thinks the B/W is better than the other edit. Since she's a High School Student, her mom could buy Photoshop CS5 at student price.
    It was one of her X-mas presents. Topaz suite is on her wish list for her coming birth day.....
    Thanks all for the feed back. I'll pass it one to her.

    I don't really know what her intentions were. She got PhotoShop CS5 as a X-mas present and spent the rest of the day installing it on her laptop and play with it.
    She downloaded a ton of tutorials from YouTube
