This portrait makes you smile. You know you have a good one when it evokes an emotion, good bad, or indifferent. That is what I feel good portraits do. #6735114

Vicki L. Filippin November 10, 2008

Oh Gena, your daughter is drop-dead gorgeous! (I'll bet her mom is, too!) You are really getting down the use of Topaz adjust in your portraits to enhance them and not look "filtered" I just love the overall tone of this image...it goes so well with her orange sweater and the crispness of autumn. I like that you're not afraid to take risks with different angles. The intentional tilt really works for this.

Nicely done, girlie-gurl! #6736011
