    Default C & C wanted. A simple mother and daughter studio portrait

    The goal was to create a simple classic image tht would become a family heirloom to be passed down to the daughter.
    I feel, I have come close, but would value your thoughts.

    Colour and sharpness-wise, I think you've done well; however, I'd have chosen a very different crop as it's a rare portrait that requires feet to be in it. The girl's feet in particular really stand out and draw too much attention. The same could be said for mom's arms and watch - the body position just isn't flattering. The best solution for my tastes would be to focus on the faces and have the bodies in a better position to respect the rule of thirds. If I were to really be nitpicky, I don't like the multiple catchlights and their position - they "blotch" the eyes more than beautify them.

    Personal taste and not a technical criticism, the blue and pink won't age well and a black-and-white treatment might give a more timeless quality - you could also correct the lighting issues on the necks that way.
