Nice one.

My daughter hates her photo taken.

Check White balance.

Yes.

Thanks. I do feel the color balance needs some work.

Interesting... I thought it was intentionally warmed. IMO, there is nothing wrong with it as is. Some people are sticklers for correct WB but I personally go with what looks good.

I agree. Its a great shot of a beautiful young woman. 

There are some unnecessarily rude individuals on DPReview who don't add to the conversation, just criticise *blindly* from the anonymity of their armchair... 

Apologies, rant over...

Beautiful shot. Nice soft warm feel to it. Very inviting and loving. The only crit I would give is the center crop is a little off to me. She's looking right...so a little bit of negative space on the right side of frame might be nice. Would have to actually see it to make that call tho.

Maybe something like this:

I also adjusted the curves a little to isolate the subject a bit.

Whilst I prefer your processing, I think the original image is stronger as there is a clear triangle made with her arms and head. This is lost in the crop and thus loses some of its strength.

Although, the above is of course all a matter of opinion!

A good point.  I was just saying it seemed a little too wide and symmetrical.  Not to say my crop is better.  Just throwing out ideas.

Lovely image and lovely child (not that she would not want to be called that!). You rightfully must be very proud. All the best.

This is just fantastic! Perfect shot! If I have to complain, then perhaps I would dampen the wrinkles around the eyes and slightly dodge the chin, but that would make it less real.
