Still Trying: Thoughts on These?
Two more possibilities:
Untitled as Yet (but accepting ideas)
Poised by Nature
Since I took this picture, the young lady has donated her hair to "Locks of Love."

Kirk, the little girl is adorable.....I'd crop just below her hair so they don't ding you for the hands....

I like the little girl the best, Kirk, but I think she needs some headroom. I don't mind the hands a bit.
Nice avatar, Jack. Broad light notwithstanding.

"Funny, I like the hands. It's what makes her a little girl.
Actually I do too, if I were judging it, it's a merit. I was thinking of a lot of the judging I've seen over the years....
I hope her father owns a shotgun, in about 10 years he's gonna need it....

You have two great images. The child seems to be everyone's favorite so far. I really like one of the lady too - nice skin tones, colors, lighting, etc. From my limited experience in watching judging, it seemed that images of beautiful women didn't impact the judges as much as images of children. I'm sure that the impact a photo has on a judge would vary with one's experiences.
I think I would like to see a little more headroom on the child or maybe move her down a little to get her eyes on the third.

I like both images but the little girl definately has the better chance for meriting. I have no problems with her hands at all. I would crop it horz. though just below the shoulder line and still keep the full width that you are showing here. I feel that it adds impact this way and takes away from her hair that is splitting on her shoulder some.
The young lady is a beautiful subject but we are looking square into her shoulder and the backs of her hands. The hand is about the size of a face and distracts from the graceful elegance of her face. In most cases a womans hands should be photographed to show the edge or profile of the hand making them graceful. As she is pictured here I do not believe the lady would merit, the girl as she is, might merit and with work I believe would merit.
