Absolutely gorgeous work Nikki. #1480019

Michelle Alton level-fanatic 8/12/2012 5:00:58 AM

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! #10272693

Winsome, is that the word for the expression? Well, lots of words, I guess. Sweet, tentative, gentle . . . Just lovely, Nikki. #10273226

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! #10273249

Absolutely beautiful! Great capture Nikki. #10486304

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 #10486659

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