Nice Portrait

I am not able to critique the photo as I have limited experience with portrait photography.

You have a beautiful daughter and at 16 you're lucky that she will pose for you. I looked at your flicker photos and you have done some nice work.

Taff, I'm seeing a black blob in her hair. They didn't give it back to you with a dirty sensor did they?

Thanks guys for the nice comments.

Well done gary, in my attempt to PP to black and white I was about to clear the messy part in her hair but then changed my mind and forgot to remove the ugly blob

Ok, a minus for the PP, 7.5 out of ten for the portrait and 10 out of 10 for the persuasion.

Ohh you never do until it's got you by the throat...

(It is lurking in her part of her hair)

I'll give you 10 for persuasion as well. How do you convince a daughter to have her portrait shot? You must have some street cred Taff.

You must have said something nice to her just before the shot, no one can smile so naturally just for the pose Great shot, imo!
