Hi Nhat! Nice facial expression of the kid. Nice bright eyes too! It's just a li'l bit shaky.


Nice soft focus layer and how you made the eyes pop-out a bit. But like I learned from the masters here in TL, you could forget to apply the soft focus effect because children's skin are already soft and what's important is their facial expression. Definitely the mood suits your title. TFS!

Interesting choice to blur all face exept eyes.
Nice PP work, but try to get this effect without PP, just with gear.

Vey well captured. The slightly 'soft' face adds to the artistic quality of your image. Also, like in your other portraits, one senses a rapport between you and the 'subject'. Thank you for sharing this image. Cordelia


Great compo - Like the crop and very soft look.


Beautiful. You've captured the beauty of the Vietnamese eyes. With the rest of the photo placed out of focus, you brought the peoples attention just to the eyes. Congrats.

This is very good, I like the tight cropping and the soft focus. Her eyes are captivating!!!

Hi Nhat...
A pretty little girl very well portrayed, her sulky expression is adorable!
I like cropping and composition, with emphasis on her beautiful eyes...
Details where details should be... Soft where soft is fitting!

Nice capture

You really can feel the sadness this little tike feels.

I also like the use of B&W and softening of the image.

Sadness is written in those big, bright, beautifull eyes.
