I caught her just after lunch and had to clean her face a bit, but who could resist those eyes?! Oh, and I almost forgot to tell you - the "bracelet" she is wearing is actually a shaving from the cooper's shop; the kids call them "curlies".

Yes it is. She already seemed a "throwback" to days gone by, but your brilliant treatment has "nailed" it! Beautiful tones, and the hair light from the the window is just inspired!

Winsome, is that the word for the expression? Well, lots of words, I guess. Sweet, tentative, gentle . . . Just lovely, Nikki.

An amazing portrait---her eyes are mesmerizing and her expression so appealing (the way she is holding the cup adds so much). I love the way you handled the colors and tones---beautiful!

This has such a wistful, old-time feel to it, Nikki. It is a wonderful shot with interest and emotion. The gold and brown tones really add a lot, too. Congratulations on Finalist and I suspect this might go beyond. TED
