First, thanks for all your comments on the images that were posted this week – they're much appreciated.

As for this one: this is Harmony, playing on her DS outside our chalet at CenterParcs, where we spent most of this week. It was a good trip, and the kids all enjoyed it, but I didn't spend a great deal of time taking photographs: a) because I didn't really have time, and b) because the light was terrible.

What she's thinking here: "Dad, why haven't we upgraded to a DS Lite yet???"

belle déclinaison en rose. Le regard est délicieusement acidulé

The best!! Love it! The captured emotion is just great!

It's a lovely portrait of Harmony but somehow it doesn't completely do it for me. And I can't really say why. I think, and this is probably very personal, that the pink and the green together look a bit too washed out for my taste. I also have the impression that the eyes are not completely sharp.

Fab expression. If I had a DS and the brain training prog, wonder if I'd look this bright-eyed and bushy tailed!?

Beautyful portrait ! Very nice lighting !

Thanks everyone.

Robert: it doesn't quite work for me either, but I tried a more saturated version, and a black and white one, and neither worked. As for her eyes: the entire image is a bit soft.

You have really given this one a very highkey expression, it looks great!
