Congrats! and happy belated b-day!

Being a newb here I probably don't have any place to say this but I am not known for holding back my opinions

I really like the way this photo is composed, the color and lighting is beautiful... it helps that you have such a cute little girl to photograph but I do have one thing that bothers me with it. I'm not liking how much retouching was done to the image. Her skin is way too smooth, she has no texture at all to the lower portion of her face. I don't mean to put down the contest winner but I'm just not one who likes photos that just don't look "natural" anymore. I would probably like the original better.

Again, this is JMHO.

Thanks you everyone for your awesome comments and congrats

crazy_dragonlady. Thank you for your honesty and opinion here. This is not a perfect photo, I know, still learning. I did put this through neat image, but only a little to get rid of the noise, so the original is not much different from this. A combinations of narrow dof, natural light and a child with skin like silk probably has contributed to the softness of the skin, not sure. Personally, I like the way I edited it, but it does look better viewing it in PS to here, not as flat and a little sharper. Thanks again.

I must say that I do disagree with crazy dragonlady. I think this is an awesome shot and a worthy winner. I dont think the skin is unatural at all. In fact I think the shot retains heaps of detail. Just check out how sharp the eye brows and lashes are.

Is it protocol on this site to critisize a shot in what should be a congratulatory thread?

Anyhow I love the shot and congratulations Andy.
