No responses!
Then again, you haven't called on anyone else and thereby lies the problem. Try visiting other postings and leaving a simple comment. You will be surprised how many people visit you as a result, I would hope.
I found this in the Uncritiqued file and wondered why. There are few reasons - one covered above.
Another is all down to presentation and you should always consider cropping for visual power, removing any distractions from the core subject.
I will attach a workshop for you that will outline some very simple edits and, hopefully, will show a more powerful image? Do take a look?
Welcome to the harsh world of TL ;)

Subject is high in cuteness factor and is VERY colourful and, importantly, is sharp. Let's see if I can do something with it ...

Surfed through. Stopped here. No real idea why BUT it is in human nature to be ... interested in the lives of other people, if only to check out their taste in furniture. Leave the drapes open at night and passers-by WILL look in. Can't stop themselves ;) So, I succumbed to the normal human failing. Can't shoot me for it!
Interesting subject, would have been more interesting to see just one human figure?

Not with you in the slightest regarding your sentiment, as I am a 100% atheist, but the image is a winner. The distant car is a masterpiece. Congratulations on this one. Be very proud of it and yourself.

Again, it's the light that makes this jump above the ordinary, with the reflection in the river doing a fine job. Another very typical technogran postcard ;) Louvre?

Very elegant and stylish. That arm/hand is just so right!
How many baby photos can one man post? Unlimited ;)
Congratulations, anyway. Enjoy while you can.

More 'chat' chat.
You are leading a sedentary lifestyle, A. Get off your butt and enjoy that glorious weather outside! Bring me cops arresting someone? Just cops would do.

Of the three, tone differences aside, I like the content of this one better, where the composition appeals more, even with the intentional tilt ;)
The windows at the top are vital.

I'm not a big fan of flower shots. Even if they are not easy to do, they still seem to me to be an 'easy' option. However, the colour contrast is what attracted me here from any other of your more recent submissions. Black and orange are a sure winning combination and this crop is tight enough. Frame? Green/yellow? .... Mmmmmmmmm.
I like the fly! Have two points for having a fly.

Beauty behind bars! Are we inside jail looking out or outside looking in? I'll go for the former, 'cos of the light.
Nice note ... stopped short, though. I want more.

Varied opinions above ... just about all totally valid. This is not easy, with so many aspects to control. I get the impression that there were a number of photographers in a group and she was looking at them all in turn - and it wasn't your turn yet :) Were Gazza and I off to the right? Can't remember the occasion. Too many San Miguels maybe.
Not looking that comfortable?
Keep trying, though, as Larry King is on a long-term contract and, thus, I can cope.
