    How does one ever pick a best photo?! Obviously, I have no clue, lol!

    Thanks for all the nice comments, this is by far not my best shot, we went to USA and Hawaii just recently, had a lot of images to chose from, couldn't make up my mind so in the end I went with something cute from a photo shoot I did in March.

    I love this shot, especially her expression somewhere between contemplative and watchful. Could have been improved by a color balance adjustment or conversion to bw.

    Beautiful shot, face is lovely and pose is great.

    Good work for getting down low, makes all the difference to give a different perspective. I think the skin tone is maybe a little unnatural. But very well done otherwise.

    What a sweetie! Lovely capture. One of my favs.

    It all comes together so well - the unusual angle and pose, the soft features and colours of the child against the texture of the grass, and the blurred background to make it all stand out. Great shot!

    Very nice child portrait, I like the natural pose and thoughtful expression. Nicely angled capture of a pretty little girl. High on my list

    @forkcandles, funny you should say that, I struggled as to whether I should clone them or not, bc I figured the nit pickers on here would comment on it.

The thing is I didn't clone it when I gave them to my client, she loved them the way they were.

Also to those who mentioned the green hue on her body, I have to say it's not showing up on my monitor, so nothing I could've done about that, but thanks anyway.

    What a little cutie! This is a well composed and captured portrait of a beautiful little girl.

    cloned the dirt of the knees and a leaf removed. too much pp for me
wondered why the little girl was impatient to get back to getting dirty again.....

    Beautiful portrait - well posed. On my monitors there is a hint of green in the shadows on her face - reflection from the grass I suspect. Kudos for getting this one.

    Such a cute portrait taken down low which works well. My only negative is the green hue from the grass that's cast on the skin. I'd warm it up a little.
Nicely done though.

    Classic! No obvious pp so whatever you did was well done. High in my list.
