    RovingMike Crucifixion's a doddle...

    That's a very nice study, but quite noisy. I would clone out the frilly bit bottom right, not crop, because the framing is right. Look at knocking the folds above back a bit too as they are quite distracting.

    Delightful moment. It is a great age! Unfortunately they soon become self-aware and run shrieking from the camera! The hardest thing I have found with my young children/grandchildren in turn is placing focus. Because their skin is so smooth it is really difficult to judge where it is. I have a feeling that the focus in this one is a little forward and the eyes a touch soft but it might be my imagination. I agree with Mike to lose the zip (?) bottom right corner and slightly darken the right edge. I'd guess you have used a gradient filter to compensate the strong sidelight. You could try weakening it a small bit to reduce the noise it introduced. I think the picture can take being a bit darker to the left of the crayon without losing its appeal.

    I agree with the above, plus she has what I assume is crayon on the bridge of her nose. Very nice though. (Very similar composition to old film portrait of my son. )

    Is she really called Pheobe and not Phoebe?

    The above is a question not a criticism. I understand that both spellings are used but the oe is more common than the eo.
