    LOL!!!! That would be a great assignment, Tegan - photograph something other than a person that would "describe" you. Maybe October? Halloween is coming up!
    Tegan's goat = susan getting inspired! WOW!
    still giggling.

    I had to do a lot of editing on her. It is my friend's daughter. This shot was one of three, she came to that spot on the playground and spit over the edge. In this shot, she had spit rolling off her lip and down her chin... but I loved the picture, so I went with it, cooled it off and made her eyes pop. I believe I softened the face a bit too, maybe I shouldn't have though...

    I still haven't had time to massacre an image in photoshop, but here is a portraiture I took the other day...

    Nice shots Kiley and Mindforge.
    Kiley - this is a lovely portrait of your son. Small tip - a shaded environment like this is perfect for a reflector/a hint of fill flash to brighten the eyes.
    Mindforge - Nice portraits as well, I especially like shot 2 of the girl sticking her head out (though imo, I think you overdid it a tad on the eyes).

    Travis I think this is an excellent portrait which requires very minimal post-processing!

    Here is my portrait submission. I love this photo-the little face she made just cracked me up! Her mama loved it too.

    nice one mindforge - love the eyes...
    only thing i'd like to see is the full hand her chin is resting on, and the rest of her ear.
