Really like it. I will bet that someone will question the crop at the forehead, or if it's not a crop, zooming in that close. I peered at this quite intently myself. The overall appeal, which is my first consideration, is...well, considerable. Cute kid for sure, and the cute kid is well presented in this photo. You have involved the viewer in a positive way, catching the the youngster looking directly at the camera. Details are crisp and the colors are very attractive. Skin tones, complexion is going to make the older girls cry with jealousy when they see this. Good work. Best regards,

KennethD

Thanks Kenneth, I like to push the boundaries with the crops, A whole head does not have to be in the photo as long as the eyes (or her eye in this case) are caught, I was trying to get this shy child as she looked up, I was using the 300mm lens.

I like natural light closeups myself, too. Sometimes I even like to crop/zoom in and get just someone's eye in the picture.
