This pic is a little soft but I like the expressions these two sisters have.
The girl in front was such a spaz (she was great fun!). It started to rain and she became quiet and sat on my porch with her sister. That's when I quickly snapped this shot.
As soon as I posted this I decided it was wrong. This could be better... so I reposted a new version as a workshop. It's got a link on this page (just left of this note).

Hello, Alex. This is a great candid portrait. Good catch light in the eyes. I like the extreme close-up and the one girl's hand on the right. You're right, though, I would prefer for the girl on the left to be sharper. But my main quibble is the heavy border which overpowers the subjects. An image like this doesn't need a border, or if it does, try something thinner.

Lovely portrait. I find your composition great, I like this tight framing and these nice eyes looking at you. They are not really posing, they are just curious. Maybe a little soft, mainly on the girl in front, but not that much that it would ruin the pic. I agree with Eva that the frame is too much, especially with that color. I made a WS to try to correct the sharness a little.

on vois bien l'expression du visage et surtout cette lumiere qu'elle ont dans les yeux

Great picture, however, it is the sharpeness that is holding it back for another point.
But lovely expressions. The border is a bit thick too.

I wonder if the picture is not slightly out of focus. Still, you captured a superb face. On top of that, your composition is really interesting with both girls trying to look closer at you if I understand well. Nice color framing too which enhances the impact of the scene, of their eyes. I love this shot !

Really an excellent portrait. Framing is perfect (but not the frame). So much warmth. I take the liberty to post a WS.

Amazing portrait. The expression of their eyes says a lot. It could be interesting to run the pic in neat image and then use unsharp mask with P.S. Great job Alex.Merry XMas & a Happy New Year.

Magnifique ce duo, le portrait est très bien construit et l'image est chaude et douce.J'aurai peut-être essayer de faire la mise au point sur le premier penfant plutot que sur le second mais j'aime bien aussi. Amicalement/jr
