Thank you Nishchaya Yeah she is a real sweetheart. Did not notice the chin part when I clicked but after going through discussions in "Portrait thread" realised what I missed..Debarshi, your subject is so beautiful that I'd refrain from commenting but you missed the chin for sure
Thank you dada..got your point. Wanted to fill the frame with her face so tried like this..will keep your words in mindDebarshi, yes missed chin and more importantly the kid should not have looked out of the frame. If the head was on the right side of the frame and the empty space in front of & not behind the head, the image would have been better.
Indeed Ankur...I too spent almost entire time with her...but she is so active before shutter button is pressed her head is in different direction..Deb, The kid is so beautiful that I can photograph her/him all day long....
First what I like :As per advice from experts I clicked couple of images last night and uploading one of them, please feel free to comment...

Camera- Nikon D3100
Lens- 50mm, (35mm equivalent:75mm)
First what I like :
Good expression caught
Quite clean in spite of being shot at high ISO
What I don't like
Head hitting top frame ( I prefer either more margin or a lower crop)
Central framing of head
shooting from lower level hence bloated chin. Please shoot at eye level. From higher level you get bloated forehead.
harsh quality of light ( on board flash?)
Background is busy
BTW 50 mm in crop sensor does not mean 75 mm in FF term. It gives a "Field of view" similar to which a 75 mm lens would render on full frame. But the characteristics of 50 mm will remain same. It will not allow you to come as close to subject WITHOUT distorting facial features as a 75mm lens normally would on full frame .
On camera flash is pretty harsh for portraits most of the times, I have observed...
Recently i made a on camera flash diffuser (for my photography experiments, with kitchen bloating paper) and found it good.
