~50mm, f/4.8, 1/90, natural light~
*I debated over whether or not to leave the amount of catchlights...I posted this one because I really liked the natural look. (I may posted the edited version ~with one catchlight per eye~ later.)*

I like it Sherry. Love the catchlights. They are good sizes and well placed w/in the eyes - making the eyes sparkle. This is a lovely portrait.

Another great portrait Sherry! I love the eyes just as they are. In fact that is what caught my attention first. So I'd say leave them unedited.

Sherry, in what mode did you shoot this? I own a D50 and I never get this kind of clarity. Did you use the matrix metering mode? What brand of lens did you use?

Thank you, Donna, Kate, Deborah and Sal!
Sal, I used a 50mm Nikon lens and pattern metering mode.

Sherry...love the LOOK. What a great portrait...I like that there are so many catchlights...I do the same thing though....not sure whether to clean it up or just leave as is. Congrats on your WIN.

Congrats on your winner, Sherry. The expression you've captured in this image is perfect for its also-perfect title.

The colors are lovely and her hat and sweater are super-complementary.
