We are on vacation and I have no lights or anything... so this is all natural, light from a window... and my beautiful daughter once again.

She's a college kid... but barely looks 16. I do hope noone says it's DNMC on the age limit... but it's inevitable, I suppose... she's gotten it all of her life.

I also hope no one recognizes her as my daughter. Surely no one will... but I was shocked when folks recognized me in the Panning challenge. So, maybe folks here are much smarter than I am.

Wait. I already know that. *sigh*

Oh yeah, here's the full shot: ' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/85000-89999/86447/120/808010.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/85000-89999/86447/120/808010.jpg', '/') + 1) . '
I'm interested in if you think I did the right thing. I'm always such a basket case when it comes to pushing that enter button... *sigh* ... especially when I'm in competition along with teammates and my decisions affect them. *sigh again*

I had BW edits, Lucias Arts edits, cropped edits, non-cropped edits... you name it. I had it. *sigh*

Finally, I said to myself, "Stop the madness. Enter. Just enter. Good golly!"

So, here it is. Like her or not.

(But, I hope you do... *sigh* )

I keep forgetting that you have a human offspring in addition to your collection of critters!

Wonderful portrait.

I thought this was very pretty - and I did not recognize her as your daughter. I loved how the focus started on the face and then drifted off into softness. Beautiful shot Lydia!

This is a nice idea, and your composition is quite good, but i think you went a little too far on her eyes.

I quite like the perspective - tastefully done, and really shows off those blue eyes and freckles well.

Oh, I love this one! It jumps out at you and grabs your attention. It's one I will remember long after I've clicked away. I can't imagine this one not being in the very top few!
