That's a pretty wonderful snap, Frank, great expression and pose. And of course, a terrific hat, the necessary accessory for any stylish young lady. I think I'd try to smooth out the little area of shadow on her forehead, which has a kind of mottled look that doesn't match her skin. I think you could crop at that vertical line on the right side. Very nice processing/toning.

I like the crop as is, probably because it allows more space for her afar thoughts. You can see the universe reflected in her eyes! Her EYEEEEEEEEEEES! (OK)

All the great photographers use cameras! No, really. :|

Pinchable cheeks, pert mouth. A keeper, indeed. The eyes, however, trouble me; they are not bright and innocent. I see there a sadness, a wistfulness or resignation, even a combination of all three. Almost as if she can see things to come. Hard for me to look at it. You really captured something profound, I think. Matt

All my reactions are very subjective, sometimes rational, somethings emotional. Thanks for the moment. Matt
