I was trying t figure out what to shoot for this challenge and knew when to capture this challenge. My daughter, although she doesn't know that she is saying at times, prays with me or her mother. This time she just prayed on her own. I had the chance to photograph her and her pure innocence without her knowing until the camera clicked. And to think that she just turned 4 in March.


Crop and Straightened

Also, cloned out some stray hairs around the nose and face. Converted to Black and White.

Finished off with some Topaz Denoise 5

I hope you enjoy.

What a lovely child! And I love your idea.

I wish the BW conversion were a bit better... As someone described it to me, "There needs to be true white and true black... and then shades in between."

I'm missing the brightness... and it ends up feeling a bit drab.
