Those 50mm lenses can be difficult for focus but you've done a good job here - it's sharp.

The only negative here really is that your niece's leading eye is turned mostly away from the camera - we can't really get a good view of it, and that does take something away from the shot.

PP work isn't what I'd choose to do but it gives this a unique and appealing flavour.


Vraiment belle cette puce


Lovely charming pose of your niece.

Nice lens to accomplish that DOF.
Agree with Rew about the eye.
Keep on practicing with PP, a lot of tools are great and you´re doing good job.


Beautiful photos and child.I like this photos.
Regards Zoran

Nice focus, great job with the PP too - interesting notes!!! Good narrow DOF and nice light..


PS - I don't mind the lack of eye contact.

Bonjour jr

What a dear little girl your niece Iyah is.
Very nicely captured, and I love her expression and position of her hands.
Good focus and she shows up well against the soft background
Well done
