Shoot. Edit. Submit.

I'm linking up to the Shoot. Edit. Submit. photo challenge over at Mom Tried It.  This week I chose a favorite of Alivia that I just recently took.  We were at the park and, not that you can tell from the picture, she was sitting on a bumble bee rocker ride.  Well that's what I'm calling it anyway.  Her daddy was sitting behind her.  I feel like the angle, light, her expression, and colors all came together perfectly for this shot. 

Shutter Speed: 1/500  Aperture: f/5.6   ISO: 200   Focal Length: 55mm

Processing Recipe (cooked up in PSE):
1. Boosted contrast slightly.
2. Sharpened eyes, nose, and mouth.
3. Added a very subtle vignette.
4. Resized and added watermark for web.

As a reminder, I recently added the Google Friend Connect gadget to my sidebar.  
You'll just have to scroll down the page a bit to see it.
