    Nice portrait, Edward. I like how the girl is looking at me from behind violin. I was thinking about taking a similar portrait of my daughter, but I found it hard to do so. She’s wants to play more than pose for the photos ;-).
You did a nice job on this one.

Great portrait!!! I love how she doesn't show much emotion which doesn't distract from the violin...both are equally appealing! : )

Thank you very much for the great comments. She is my daughter and she is my 'in house' model. You'd never know from the photo that she was constantly asking...how many more are you going to take?

Thanks again

Ed

Nice shot. I just uploaded one so similar. Music as the background though. I guess we are on the same wavelength.
