My Show {off}

This is my submission for the photo challenge at and then, she {Snapped}.  It's one of my favorite pictures!   I took it later in the day so the light wasn't at its brightest.  With that being said, and in order to avoid using a flash, I had to up my ISO to let in more light.  My shutter speed was only at 60 which was super low for trying to capture a moving baby with ants in her pants :o)  When I tried to up it, the picture got too dark.  The aperture was set at 3.5.   This is my edited version since my SOOC shot was still a tad dark.  My original composition, although still good, was completely changed in this edited version.  Her face was so beautiful I decided to crop it and make it a close-up.  After I adjusted the exposure and colors, I softened her hair a bit and added a bokehlicious dancing light action that I purchased at Paint the Moon.  I could get lost in my baby's eyes!  I never get sick of looking at this one!  Hope you all like it!
