Post Challenge: Now I look at it, the pose could really have used some work. This comes accross like a snap-shot, at best. Nothing like self-critique! :)

Taken in cloud-diffused sunlight with
on-camera flash for fill. (It's all I have! :P)

Well thanks for the compliments. I completely agree -- the face should have at least been visible. Having the camera up there does nothing to add to the photo at all.

Interestingly, I voted 1's for over 60% of the Portrait challenge entries. They all look so fake. The winners might have well have been airbrushes of computer generated images IHMO. Very dissappointed in the human race over this frankly.

Of over 88,000 voters in the challenge, it would appear only myself and one or two others (literally!) share the same view to the degree I do. Wow. Don't *I* feel special! :)

Nice one. My kids tell me the only time they can catch a picture of MY face is with MY camera(ha ha). Love the texture of the tree and color overall.

I like the idea... I just wish I could see her face. How would you do that? I dunno... hold the camera down like you're about to use it? Or maybe put the camera on the other eye? Something.
