This is the portrait of Harmony I mentioned yesterday: wearing her princess dress and Stephanie wig. And you probably won't be too surprised to hear that I'm pleased with this one :-)

She is so lovely. Black and white actually works great!

With that wig on she looks like a cross between Britney Spears & Katie Holmes. Great look into the camera!

I think this is absolutely superb, as was the last one. 9 comments on the last one - I'll be interested to see what this one gets. Not that I think any of these comments mean a damn thing...but you know what I mean.

I've said it before that your general audience seems to be attracted to your 'photo candy landscapes'...they don't seem to have the intelligence or the eye to address anything more interesting though. This is wonderful. It's - once again - your photoshop and processing skills that really come to the fore here but it works. It works!

You're giving me some inspiration/motivation to tackle my own children again.

I do though suspect that your PS skills have come heavily into play, however, that's a given when it comes to you I guess and shouldn't be viewed

Oh and your masking is rubbish!! ;))

lovely shot, and for me it is the grubby little feet, splayed out, that makes it stand out. It makes her a princess of action..

think it is a cute pretend photo, but something about the feet positioning is distracting. it really takes away from her and her expression.

A really nice, 'natural' shot. I especially love the delicate tones in this and yesterdays offering. This would look fantastic as a fibre-based print.

Gorgeous and just LOVE yesterday's of Finley :-)

It's her dirty looking feet that make this shot extraordinary.

I just love this and the previous image...just got childhood all wrapped up in those two shots.

Me gusta mucho ese retrato. Great!

Thanks all.

Mark: ta, but what did you mean about the masking?

comment by Mark at 12:15 AM (GMT) on 23 June, 2008

Ah....another one of my late night visits, Dave. ;)

I think I was referring to the edges of Harmony's hair...however, I was being toyingly critical I have to say. It was tongue in cheek as I've (hopefully) made clear previously that I love what you're doing with the G9. I'm failing terribly with it....but having said that I'm really not tryin g very hard of late :(
