My daughter lives 6 hours away and I don't get to see her much anymore. So, it was good to see her for a couple of days around Christmas.

Pretty girl. This certainly appears to be a professional image.

Nice work.

Outstanding portrait. And, she's certainly a lot more photogenic that those high school football players you used to post pics of on WebAp.

Hi Gary

She is a beautiful young woman and this fine portrait clearly shows that.

Hey Gerry!! Good to hear from you. Yeah, somehow a sweaty linebacker wearing a helmet does not match up. Smile

You have a beautiful daughter and you've captured her beauty so perfectly. I am not a portrait photographer but this looks very very good to me.

She's beautiful. I know you are proud of her. Great shot.

Once again I'll say that I don't usually comment on family members or pets.
The picture here is excellent with perfect exposure for subject and muted background. The informal nature of the pose is just right.
Two observations if you don't mind (as this will obviously go into the family album). Firstly, the knuckles of the left hand are slightly burned-out - this requires little more than low strength dodge brush in PS or elements.
Secondly, you have some slightly distracting reds and bright-ish highlights in the background and perhaps more space there than is necessary. May I suggest a crop from the top to remove red spot and highlights and a further crop to place the border touching (or even encroaching onto) the subjects back (at seat level). Try it - I think you'll like it.

PS. Good to have another D700 user aboard.

Your daughter is beautiful, and you've done an outstanding job here.
Her wonderful smile steals the show, no nit pickin' from me Smile
Both my sons live far from us now, I know how it is.
Well done!
