This is my 12 year old daughter, whom had just lit the candles. Dale helped me darken the background so it wasn't distracting. For some reason, her left eye was darker than the right, so I used a screen blend on it to even them up. #1504403

Elaine, get ready for those teen years, because she is going to dazzle the boys. Get ready with some defensive moves. :o) #10471345

A very pretty young lady and this is an excellant image that she will be able to look back on in years to come, without cringing.
Nice work Elaine. #10475539
