This is a very expressive and fine portrait. Its an impressive POV and talkative eyes. Splendid shot, indeed. Thank you, nice days

the close up adds to the face expression
good macro use although it has became a little bit blurry

A very mischievious look indeed...
A bit lacking in sharpness but the eyes pull very powerfully.
A righ choice here.

A beautiful portrait with a good light. I like the blurred green background, the clear eyes focused on the camera, the finger close to the chin which seems to be awkward, while, by her look, she seems so sure of herself. Congratulations, Marine.

Vivek, this is a very beautiful portrait, maybe a bit of sharpness could have done it better. TFS, Arnab

I am back Dragon Vivek...and back to your amazing work. This moment, those smiling eyes, those silent lips have been composed so well. The lights are just right.

A fine portrait, Vivek. I think you can get away with the soft focus here, just. Her thoughtful expression and soulful eyes allow this.

An excellent portrait Vivek.
I like the wet hair and the colourful defocused background, but it's the strong, confident eye contact that has made this shot a success.
I wish that the eyes were a bit sharper though.
You captured a great expression here, and also it seems, something of her personality and spirit; not an easy thing to do.

Very nice indeed...softness on the entire picture heightens the mischievous look in her eyes. The croppoing is very effective, but may be a tad sharper? A very good portrait anyway

Hi, Vivek. A very good portrait. I like the way the little girl is looking up at you with her beautiful brown eyes. She looks very confident. She stands very well out on the green background thnks to the short DOF.

Lindo olhar desta menina Vivek, uma foto muito expressiva, parabéns pelo trabalho.

I can't get over this young girls incredible beauty. Your shot has only filled the scene with respect for what a simple bit of eye contact and facial expression can do. I won't dwell on the sharpness thing; for that matter I didn't even notice...the look is so strong it overpowers the nitpicking that can be done to so many photos. Good natural colors and I bet this young one has an amazing personality...it just bleeds from your photograph.

Excellent shot; I like the expression of her face & her eyes are mischievious. Framing & cropping is perfect. In my view little sharpness would have been an added advantage(may be i am wrong). Thanks for sharing this wonderful image.
