Hey Manuj,

This is a beautiful portrait. She had a wonderful expression and you have caught it just perfectly. Sure the lighting could be a little softer, but who cares when you have joy such as this.

Well composed, with a great neutral background with which she contrasts well.

Great work!


Hi Manuj

beautiful in light and sharpness

Hello Manuj! Amazing girl. Smile of the world. Great shot. Well done!

Hi Manuj,
A wonderful moment for your daughter with a nice and joyful expression!
Great portrait as usual with excellent lighting and sharpness!
Good timing to capture this position.
Fabulous work!
Best regards,

Hello Manuj,
Excellent timing on this one: a playful and enjoyable moment in a child's life.
Composition is good as well, but I tend to agree with Skot about the light, that I would have liked a little softer. The same goes, in my opinion, for the sharpness of her face: it is a good thing that it is sharp, especially the eyes, but perhaps it is a tad too sharp, which slightly reduces the "cuteness" of this portrait. Did you do PP-work to have the face that sharp (compared with the rest of the body) or did you achieve this "in camera"?
TFS & kind regards,

hello Manuj,
Great portrait of joyful girl...I loved right sided light and shade

Olá Manuj,
A great dedication from a father for their cute daughter. Excellent portrait, very good lateral lighting and use of shadows, good non disturbing BG. The frame is functional.
Saude e az,

Hello Manuj,

This portrait is so different from those you usually portray. This is full of fun, life and vitality!
Her face is perfectly sharp and detailed whilst a light blur on her hands suggests the movement!

Have a good day,
Bev :-)

Wish to you and your family happinesa and health!

Hi Manuj,
Beautiful portrait shot, she looks so happy - framin,colour focus, pov, mood all perfect. TFS

Hi Manuj, a really nice fun, playful shot of your Divija. She's beautiful.
The light is harsh, but still it has been managed just fine. The background here is also perfect ... doesn't distract, but makes her stand out nicely.
Great job

hello Manuj,
your daughter is a delightful little girl. her smile will warm a thousand hearts! You have captured a charming portrait.
best regards,

Delightful capture, the expression is everything here. Her placement in the frame is terrific and the play of light and shadow works well. Personally I might have reduced a littel of the burn-out on her arm in PP but it's not a major issue.

dear Manuj mehta,
a wonderful moment of her playing you took,
her cheerful expression is very nice,
this lighting condition from both the light and the reflected light makes her face so clear and cubic, it is excellent.
and her pose looks natural and lovely.
thank you for your amazing shot,

Salam Manuj
Hope you are doing well
Good portrait of this happy girl with natural pose
Nice off-center composition, wish the freezing action managed better on her hands...

Salut Manuj.
Malgré un contraste un peu dur sur le visage l’image reste belle et très dynamique.
Le cadrage est aussi bien saisi et très réaliste.
Bonne journée.
