    Rileah, warning one of those boring old Grandma

    Here is one of my first attempts at taking people pictures.... this is my little granddaughter. I would love some feedback about what works or does not work with this photo.

    I am not able to give you any photo advise, except to say, I love it. As a Nana, I can relate..she is beatutiful.

    First attempt? Ya gotta be kidding! I like everything about it but have to mention the nice, soft look, the vignette that is done in good taste (not too heavily) and the judicious use of pink. Some people might not like the angle because of the look up the nostrils, but that doesn't bother me at all.

    What a cutie! Enjoy it while you can! They grow up way too fast!

    Once upon a time, my granddaughters looked just as innocent.
    Now the youngest graduates High School next year....

    I'm sure some one will give you some expert advise - I'm not qualified, but I do like it A LOT!

    Hi Trina,
    I think you have two reasons to be very proud here, 1 because this is a very nice picture and 2 because you have a lovely Grand-daughter.
    Well done and congratulations.

    Hi Trina!

    I can relate. I am a boring Olde Farte Grandpa myself!

    Beautiful shot of a Beautiful young lady. And I really like the way you have treated it in post-op!

    If I were to give a suggestion it would be an easy one and may be irrelevant because I think this shot is awesome!

    If you cleared up the little bits of rash on her Beautiful Face (and especially under her camera left eye) would it be to unrealistic?

    Either way, I'd just have to print this one in nice large sizes and give them away to all the family! Of course keeping an nice framer for my own wall!

    If I may paraphrase one of the photographers I respect the most (this is what he said to me and he said it best):

    If it weren't for kids, dogs, pretty gals and sunsets, the photographic industry would be in a recession...
    It is my hope that we can watch this young lady grow up through your eyes as a photographer.

    I'll be looking forward Trina.

    Re: Rileah, warning one of those boring old Grandma

    Thank you very much for the kind words... I wasn't sure if it was too light in the left hand corner....
    Mike, Thank you for pointing out how she was turned... I need to become more aware of how I arrange things... and it would not have been an issue at all to turn Rileah just a bit more...
    Terry, would one use the clone tool to clear that rash up? or should one use a brush? Thanks for pointing it out... again.. one of those details that I need to be more aware of..... I have done quite a bit in photoshop but as I said.. I have not done much photography of people.... BTW your grandson is adorable.. beautiful set of photo's you have there...

    Thank you for the comments about the grandson, Trina.

    I would probably use the healing brush first on that, Trina. Clone stamp if needed.

    Better? I went at this a bit different... most of the things in the first one I did in the raw program, this on mostly PS. I think I was able to get the rash pretty much gone though....

    Well, I'd say so, Trina.

    But the real question is what do you think about it?

    Lol I need to mush the two together... then I think it would be perfect.. I lost the muted softness from the first one.. but love the smooth baby skin in the second one. sooo... back to work:>

    Wow. She is such an adorable kid. Lots of love to her.
    Nice shot. Not a first timer, for sure.
