Hi everyone - I was blessed on this day with nice soft natural lighting , a white wall to bounce it and a cute model. What do you think?

Fab shot.

Nailed the exposure, cute kid, nice background blur, good BW conversion, catchlights in the eyes.

Nuff said.

i am not one for people portraits myself, but had to say that this one caught my eye.

i am a fan of b&w, though, and really enjoyed the conversion.

nice capture, john, as always.

Have to agree with all other comments: I can't really see any room for improvements here. Maybe there is some, but I certainly can't see it!

Great shot, John.

Best,

-Ben
