Lavonne, I just got the chance to go through your gallery, and it is spectacular!!! All your compositions are simply striking and unique, and your little subjects are just beautiful. I love this picture ... I'm a big fan of selective coloring, and this turned out just gorgeous and very natural. What an angel face your baby has! #3032626

Revonda L. Gentry July 15, 2006

Adorable!! Should be a winner in my opinion!! #3033295

Lavone Vannoy July 15, 2006

Wow! Hello everyone!
Thank you: Donna,Tressie,Stephen, Betsy, and Revonda!!

Tressie, I did crop only slightly off the bottom. I never messed with the sides or the top of the frame (it's completely in-tact). I wanted to make the image "seem" longer even though it was a major close-up of her. Thank you GREATLY for the compliment~ and your wonderful support of my gallery work!

That big thank you is for Donna, Stephen, and Revonda, as well~ You all have supported me through many other photographs as well! Know that you all are much appreciated!!!

Betsy! WELCOME to Better Photo!!! And thank you kindly for your sweet sweet comments!!! #3033701

I want to thank you also Bill for taking the time to check back on my gallery and comment on new posts...It really means a lot to me to have such wonderful support from such great people here! You are one of the ones that keeps encouragement going for us all! My goal is to keep trying to take the best photograph I can. And learn from others as well in order to better my technique and my style.

A really big "Thank You" to you Bill! #3037883

Great high key b/g & you did a nice job with the s/c on the eyes! Some people do it & it is WAY over done, BUT what you did was perfect. Just a touch;) #3040259
