I just love this little girl's curly hair.

Her name is Vanessa.

The title is from a quote ( which I forget exactly), but is something like, "In the right light, everything looks extraordinary."

I asked her to stand with the sun shining behind her to highlight her hair. I think it turned out pretty good...I hope the voters think the same:)

Cropped, adjust levels, contrast, shadows & highlights, desat, more contrast, more S&H, resize, photo filters, USM, reduce noise, crop again, reduce noise some more

This could be soooo much better with advanced editing

The title is strange but i really like this photograph. i like how the light coming through his hair looks like a halo... nice choice with the black and white.
