Hayride Portrait II

Hayride Portrait II

This is a reworking of a photo of my daughter that I posted last year. I've since upgraded my digital darkroom to Photoshop and acquired one or two new skills, so I thought I'd have another go at this one. The first attempt had too many blown-out highlights, but it turns out detail is there for the salvaging.

I took this photo in November, 2005, while on a hayride shortly after my daughter's fifth birthday.

Thanks, Ana and Daenna. Daenna, I've been using PS exclusively for about five months now. I've become hooked, to the point where I even joined NAPP (despite the fact that I am decidely not a professional). So, you're right: I love it. Smile -Brian

How wonderfully your lens carresses her Brian.......
Fathers and daughters have a romance
That goes on for the rest of their lives,
Destined to ripen and age as they dance
Through the days of their husbands and wives.

Up near the surface their love is distinct,
Like a garden surveyed in the sun,
In which seedtime and full bloom are credibly linked
By a consciousness shared and hard won.

Deep down below, where the world is a dream,
And the dream is a world of its own,
All manner of memories the moments redeem
In a place where one's never alone.
~In His Love~ Maggi D
For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.
Romans 1:16
