Hi Kirk;

This is a beautiful image Kirk ! I saw a presentation in my mind's eye and I hope my workup gives you some inspiration. I will assume the lady is her Mom.

I really like this image... the first thing that I noticed was the fantastic posing of the arms and hands. Very nice. I like the shapes that the younger girls arms are forming and the fact that they are posed very gracefully. Also, I can tell you went thru great pains to NOT shoot into the backs of their hands. As usual, the lighting is very nice and I like the expressions. I cropped in a little tighter to bring more attention to the elegantly posed daughter and I turned it black and white for a couple reasons. First, I like the tones and I think judges will too. And second, black and white will keep it about composition, emotion and expression... which are this images strong points and will serve to enhance them. My opinion, it's a good solid image... but that's just my opinions... I may be wrong.

PS-This looks a little contrasty to me after I posted it... but you get the idea.

Hi Kirk
Just wonderful! I don't know about comp but I know I like this. I love this young woman's hair! Good for her!! Anyway her natural beauty is all the more authentic without the usual skin so smooth treatment. My kinda lady. ;)

Two thumbs up.

Thanks for the composition suggestions--I see everyone is seeing more square, so I tried it that way and do like it better. I've changed the original image to suit.
