Resubmitting, originally posted in color. This is a candid portrait, taken at a birthday party. This little sweetie was sitting on her mommy's lap. We were in a barn, with light coming in from in front of her. I have converted it to bw, adjusted curves, clarified and cropped. I have also cloned out mom's thumb on her shoulder.

This is just exquisite, DA! I love it so much! It's just perfect -- and those eyes...

I just came BACK from your area, but it was such madness trying to get the kids back home that I didn't get a chance to look you up. Next time, for sure! :)

Congratulations, my sweet friend, on this finalist.
