She's a cutie. Glad you finally got to share her with us.

Bit of an awkward pose for my tastes. Also, the image has a greenish yellow tint to it.

Thats a nice pic, but as its in the critique section, the things that jump out at me are:

-Its slightly soft. not much but its noticeable around the eyes.

-the pose doesnt work for me. It looks like she is leaning against an object that has been photoshopped out of the image. If you like the pose though, thats cool, its just a subjective observation.

-The color of the hair and tree behind the head are a little too close to allow an instant clear differentiation.

-The rocks in the bottom left seem to catch my eye, not sure why but if the were missing it would work better.

All nit picking points though, its a good image

Thanks for the comments on our granddaughter, she is our little cutie.

The rocks are too bright, thought I fixed that the first time through PP.
The pose, not my favorite but will blame that on the professional photographers her parents have been taking her to every three months since she was born. Just can't trust Wal-Mart or Pennys photographers to teach good modeling.
I never noticed the tint being off but played with tint controls and yep the tint was off.
Think most of the softness is from the resizing to post in this forum. Next time I'll put the picture in Photo Bucket and link to the higher res photo.

Thanks for all the comments and tips on the picture. I really do enjoy all the help giving here.

I like the lower left rocks

makes a nice 'revolving triangle' for the eye

rock - feet - face - rock - feet - face makes the image almost move

I've shot in similar locations and have always found that the many different areas of sun and shade as you have here make things tough for getting correct exposure. I find that fill flash or exposing for the face only and not worrying about the rest of the image works the best under these tough conditions.

You can always correct highlights and shadows after the shot. Just take a lot of shots. The way they move around I'm happy to get 1 keeper out of 20.
White balance is subjective to personal taste. I always balance for the skin tones

I would say that you got pretty good exposure on this one.. And as Robert said, its nice that you finally share a photo of your beautiful granddaughter with us.

Thanks, we don't get to see her as often as we would like too.
