from making Christmas cookies...I know of a couple of things still not to my liking in this image and welcome any comment about it you may have.

Most all my images are what I refer to as grab-n-go shots so I have an awful lot of less than stellar photos cause I’m to anal to let the camera do any of the thinking and shoot in manual..scenes often change quicker than my mind and fingers can adapt....I challenge myself every so often to make a silk purse out of a sow’s ear since I have many ears to choose from….did I at least get lemonade?

please take these thoughts with a big grain of sand... too centered, perhaps give her some space to camera right. There is a slight green tint to her hair that you need to kill (but I don't trust my color vision or monitor - and on second thought, it kind of works). This would be a nice image to apply a texture to very lightly. Perhaps darken the neck a little more

The eyes -- killer eyes!!! Love the color of them. The grin, the contact - this is a very special image Frank.

You did well plucking her out of the group, and making something this pleasing from a group shot. Adjust the color just a bit to fight off a green tinge that's probably from mixed lighting? Then a keeper!

Move the image up a little showing the top of her hear and you're almost there! S-
