    Who do you think is Long's daughter?

    Long is my friend and is also Kris' friend. Today I showed a picture of my niece and Long's daughter then I asked Kris "Who do you think is Long's daughter?"

    Kris is my friend, too.

    Is the italic sentence natural?

    Re: Who do you think is Long's daughter?

    Is there a special reason why you want to refer to her as Long's daughter rather than use her name?

    Which one do you think is [insert name]?

    Re: Who do you think is Long's daughter?

    If you're asking the person to identify which of the people in the photo is Long's daughter, then use "Which one of them do you think is Long's daughter?" Presumably, you're asking the person if they can see a family resemblance.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
