Challenge: High Key (Advanced Editing VII)
Camera: Canon EOS-30D
Lens: Tamron SP AF 28-75mm f/2.8 XR Di for Canon
Date: Sep 13, 2010

Entry #1. I do enjoy high key of Rowan. I had to look back to see how many I have entered in the past. Not as many as I had thought. I will probably get dinged for being repetitous in challenges, but I dont think i really care when it comes to pics of my kids. My last high keyish entry was of my boy ( a first for him as I usually go dark) and we ended up getting it printed as a 16x20 canvas. I kicked myself for not doing a similar shot with the same lighting that day of Rowan. So this one will have to do. The challenge gave me a reason to shoot a counter image for a canvas in the home.

Hopefully this looks on others monitors as it does on mine. High key all the way with nothing but slight (very slight) patches on her forehead and cheek that remain white on a full black levels slide. Lets see how it does. My guess is a 6.3.

Post Challenge
Whooh hooh. She looks good on the front page. Only thing better is if her brother was up there with her. Lets see what tomorrow holds. ;)

For anyone interested in the editing of the eyes for this image go to this thread.

Looks fantastic and Congratulations. I've been away from the site for awhile and it was a pleasant surprise to see your work on the frontpage AGAIN! The wife and I just welcomed our 6th child, Aiden Michael, to the world and I am itching to get back behind the camera. Hopefully you'll see some of my work on the front page in the near future!

adorable image, i like the way eyes stand out

I know you've been having a discussion with someone else. But this is definitely high key, imo. Doesn't matter that the eyes are dark -- just the majority has to be over 50% grey.

Isn't she just! Beautiful - model and photo. One of my top too.

Beautiful girl, great lighting. Eyes look overcooked, but she is precious and her smile is priceless.

This is a really lovely portrait, and an image that is very well suited to high key, which you have handled very nicely. I love the little girl's sweet expression.

Pretty sure I'm looking at a member of the Too family, and what an incredible shot it is. The pose is so innocent, yet so piercing. Love it.
