    Well done! Her face and eyes are in focus, and the lighting is very good. I could wish all of her hair was in focus. If you try this again, try focusing on the rear-most hair. A "less-busy" background might still be thrown out of focus, while leaving her eyes perfectly in focus. Usually, your depth of field will be somewhat in front of the main focus area. Play with the depth-of-field some and see how it works.

    Hugs to the model.

    Jim, the super shallow depth of field is what you are seeing. The point of focus appears dead on to me.
    This photo with the same camera settings focused toward the back of the head would just make the eyes blurry?
    If you want everything in focus you need a smaller aperture.

    I think that you have the makings of a very nice shot here. Her lovely eyes are the principle attention grabbers. The distortion from a relatively wide lens works in this case because it emphasizes her eyes.

    However, the background and mass of hair conflict for my attention. I tied it with a much, much tighter crop and think that it brings out what I like in the image.

    A beautiful little girl with a wonderful expression... love those beautiful eyes. I agree a tighter crop is effective in emphasizing those eyes and pretty face. On my calibrated monitor, the color is a tiny bit blue but this can be flavored to suit your expectations. Very good job... a real keeper!

    Hi Owen,

    I don't know if it was part of the plan, but I quite liked the converging lines of the brickwork either side of Amy Louise, getting a little lower would have the point of convergence at the same level as her eyes, it would also put the more distracting elements of the background (the coloured patches at the end of the 'corridor') behind her and remove them from the composition.

    Definitely a shot we've all learned a lot from.

    Cheers,

    The tighter crop works for me. Makes you want to reach in and give her a hug.
