Our granddaughter, Michaela. Age 8. Her first braces. My first 'studio portrait.' Hung a wrinkled sheet from my bureau and had her look at the window. In PP, used the brush to make the dark smears. Matt

What a beautiful portrait of a beautiful young girl! The delicacy of the lighting and the processing is just perfect for her classic features. This is a timeless image, and there are other kinds of processing that would be appealing but I think your choice here is just great.

Yes, we are. My wife and I mention that each day. Thanks.

Anything to be done with Nick's essay, do you think? Matt

Thanks Minnie. Feel free to do some playing with the file, if you like. I would learn from it.

BTW, the family do not like it; she looks pouty and sad, they think. She is really a ray of sunshine and a willowy sprite. Hard to capture and show. But she is a good sport and a patient model for her grandfather. I'll keep trying. Matt

I like it! The curves and light (and wet spots?) make this simple image effective.

Thanks, Linda. Yes, some remnants from early morning drizzle and drain from the sloping grass. Matt

Nice one Matt. The path begs to be followed. The mist makes it mysterious and magnetic.
