Although the main TrekEarth website seems to be down just now, I thought I couldn't resist commenting on this fine picture which I first saw late last night.
For your information, the old site has the address of www.beta.trekearth.com - like this although even that's not working quite right today.
What a beautiful smile this young girl has! You have captured some wonderful light in this one - the light is falling on her face just perfectly. You have composed the picture very well too - there's an old belief from the days of the Old Masters of portrait painting that one eye of the subject should lie on the central vertical dividing line of the picture and that's where the "white" of this girl's left eye sits exactly.
Perfect exposure and excellent colours, detail and sharpness.
P.S. Looking again at this girl's features, did you use some "softening" on her face?

a beautiful girl and a great portrait
probably a bit too smooth skin but it depends on the use of the photo

A very nice portrait, well cropped and pleasantly soft. I have read your explanations about the conditions for the picture and can only say that you've done a good PP job.
I've just spent a week at the Gothenburg film festival where among others I saw an interesting Albanian movie (technically an American production) about the impact of old family feuds in modern society. The English title was "The forgiveness of blood" and was quite worth seeing.
