    Cute capture. Wish the hamster? could have been lightened up a little as it's face tends to blend into the dark background.

    The expression on the girl's face is just perfect, and you've managed to catch the light in her eyes. It might have been better to blur the background with pp rather than cloning it.

    The sharpness and detail are wonderful. Right on theme.

    A nice shot but the cloning spoils it.

    Beautiful portrait of the girl. Unfortunately the Guinea Pig is a bit lost in the shadows.

    Engaging shot that tells a story. Very nice.

    Love the story you have captured so well. Highlights in the eyes of the animal AND the handler - hard to do but SO important. The cloned area is a bit rough, it needs to be more blurred or at least softer. I'd suggest changing the opacity of the clone tool as you use it .Overall - Very well done. High in my picks for sure.

    Interesting photo and like the interaction, however the cloning wasn't done the best.

    A little rough on the pp work on the background but it was the right idea.

    following the discussions over the next challenge, this picture would not have happened had I not known the event organisers.

    1ST IMPRESION 5/5
COMPOSITION 5/5
LIGHT 5/5
FOCUS 5/5

LIKE THID RIGHT OFF AS A POSSBLE 1 OR 2.
GIRLS HAIR, EXPRESION AND INOCENCE CAPTURED ME.

I THINK THE PHOTO COULD HAVE BEEN JUST AS GOOD OR POSSIBLY BETTER WITH OUT THE CRITTER.

    I like the interplay of the subjects and the formatting. I think it's over-sharpened however (eyebrows, face, hair, etc).

    cute composition and great exposure on her face.

i'd spend some more time on the cloning to get rid of repeating patterns (i think my monitor is bright and so i see more of the cloning artifacts). i use two programs that do cloning and both offer adjustment to the edge and the density which come in very useful when you get near a subject you don't want disturbed. takes a bit of work but would be worth it in the end on your entry.
i try not to use the sharpening tool very often. there always seem to be trade offs. in this case it seems to have made her hair too course on the right side.
would love to see the original. i'm sure it may be a keeper.

    having seen the image on the voting i realise i should have used power point to remove the distraction of the background which was caots hats and stacking chair see original in outtakes
