This is so GREAT Amber. I love the expression. A lot of times you want the eyes to speak into the camera, but here that would have been a big mistake.

I love the edit into b/w too it really you keeps you focused on her instead of side tracking you with color.

(When you photograph people in colour you photograph their clothes. But when you photograph people in B&W, you photograph their souls! ~Ted Grant)

P.S. I found out today that they are giving me a 30 day trial period. The carrot they are dangling. LOL!!

Amber, I love how you've captured her very pensive mood; wonderful pose, yielding a great story telling image; what a precious subject and I agree, the B&W presentation really keeps all of the attention on her, eliminating any possible distractions; outstanding portrait!
