WOW...what a ride. At one point I almost had a 8.0 with over 100 votes in. This image stayed above a 7.7 throughout voting. This morning I woke up with a 7.96 and watched it slowly drop all day....but I am still amazed how well this scored held up over the week. Thanks so much.

The session was really easy. This is Lilah, she is 5 months old. She came over between naps, I placed her on the floor and she just smiled away. The entire session took about 15 minutes and I had about 100 frames to work with.

Thanks so much!!!

I like it very much. However, I find it somewhat oversharpened on the face. I personally prefer a somewhat softer look on the whole image, for this kind of subject/framing, but I guess it's just me.

Oh. Finally.

Thanks! I love this!
