I got a bit of a chill when I looked closely at your upload. A child on the back, albeit wearing a life jacket and dog too! Yet the adult is quite absorbed into getting to point B from point A. ohhhhhh my. You do have some hot spots of overexposure and the child seems soft but I shall check hi res before voting on your upload, usually in high res the photo is always sharper.

Dear BMW thank you for commenting because we learn from titans like yourself and I for one really appreciate reading comments, so again thank you.

Author: I laughed out loud at this upload, it is so corny that it is good, really well done in my opinion, everything looks fine to me, don't know if you fixed it or not but the first impact is strong. Good one. Thank you.

Wonderful job!! She's kinda cute.

As an extra detail, and not necessary, but you may want to clone one of the eyes some. What I am trying to say is they eyes are an exact duplicate of each other, although different sizes. At least clone that eye 'glint' so it doesn't look exactly like the other eye, or copy/pate other parts over it. (yes that's a word https://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/glint). This would be a good starting point and go from there.

Soften up the hard edges on the pupil and the "whites" of the eye, as well as get rid of that residual white at the bottom right-ish of the pupils. Sry, I am severely critical.

I like the "fly away" hairs at the top center of her head. Maybe add more to the left and right of that? Some more stuff here https://image.ibb.co/kQNLwT/strawberry.jpg

Great character author and a marvelous job!

This is the kind of portrait that speaks to the viewer, actually it sings a loud song, it's poetic. Clear and crisp but the subjects are hypnotic with eyes that look similar except in different bodies. This is one photograph that when that little boy grows into a man, and the man will no longer be there, by looking at this image he will always be alive in the little boy's heart. A beautiful portraiture. Even the blurred hand adds to the scene. I have a photo of my mom and me and her hand is blurred too holding me still. That photo is framed and covered with age. Top Marks!

The natural pathway of the human eye is to always gravitate towards the brightest spot on the "canvas" and you have placed that spot right into the grid line...well done. Sharp with soft diffusion leading us to the hot spot. This was a well thought out image and a pleasure to view and to learn from it...thank you.
