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.
