Honestly, I think this picture is all wrong...

You could have gotten rid of the people in the back and intead taken a photo of the little girl from the front at an angle, so we can see her face and the cam. There's not indication that she's a little kid except for the skinny arms (the pink watch doesn't count...)

Also, watch your focus and flash. Use a diffuser if you're getting that close.

actually i find the composition ok, just maybe more room or make it tighter... the only thing i dun like is the color cast on the rear. maybe an adjustment or some burning & dodging will help.

Well, everyonbe has their own taste.... I just don't think the "Start Early" title matches the image. Something like "Smile!" or "Say cheese!" would have been more appropriate.

thanks..i really intentionally fit the people in the baackground..something like an effect of what she sees in the viewfinder of the cam..isn't the skinny arms and the proportion of heer size good enough to say she is a child?

with regards to flash..i just used the built-in flash..is there any diffuser of reflector i can use for canon350d built in flash?

btw, how do i do burning & dodging?

You know, in a pinch, a piece of 2-ply tissue, split into 1-ply, does wonders. I tried this with a Sony H1 too... At times, the H1's flash is just way too strong and over-exposes scenes (especially indoors). A single ply of tissue and clear scotch tape did the trick. Or, 3M sticky medical tape, the thin white one.
