Just some quick shots I took of my daughter yesterday, there was some nice light coming in from her bedroom window.

Focus nailed, nice separation on the background, nice light (direction and quality), enough reflected light to fill the shadows, what's not to like...?

Apart from whatever it is on the right lapel, between wrist and teddy - I'd clone that out...

I like it too! Great look, and the teddy is a great addition!
I would have croped it more. Focus more on her face and the teddy. To me it seems like she gets lost a bit in the photograph.

Thanks both, when I get back in front of my Mac I'll have a play with the crop again. as for the spot by the teddy, it's a sparkly thing on her PJ's.. I'll take that out too, now you've pointed it out it's getting to me.

Great shot, I don't think she's lost in the picture at all, but I much prefer the coloured version over the b&w.

I think the shot is great, shadowing looks great, and as dubaiphil pointed out, focus is spot-on and she's separated from the background nicely. I also agree with breadandbutterfly, I don't think she's lost in the picture, I think that without the crop it'd look better, but that's just personal opinion. I do like the color version over the B&W as well. Nice one :)
