F2.8, 200 ISO, shutter @ 1/60. This one was a little blurry, so I used watercolor and sum-ie filters to create a painting effect. I love what it did to her eyes. Also, it has a crackle texture on it. I made myself a t-shirt out of this one!

Very sweet Dale Ann - I love how PS can save your 'almost' shots!!! I confess to using it (especially Dreamy) for the same effect. I never knew its your birthday!!!! Which date is it - the 30/6 or the 1/7 (guess you better swing those numbers around - we do them back to front to you)! My sisters is today (1/7). Have a wonderful time shooting Lavender - I am hoping the weather holds for you.
