This is a shot I took of Rhowan some time ago, taken an a wedding we all attended. It was taken quite late in the evening, by which time Rhowan was a bit tired and fed-up - hence her morose expression. As for the photograph though, she really likes it – mostly because she loves her Barbie boots – though Harmony, her little sister, did ask "Why are Rhowan's knees so grubby?".

For a split second I thought I might try and explain the complexities of tone mapping a psuedo-HDR file generated from a single RAW file using Photomatix Pro, but Harmony's only five, so I didn't :-)

If you're interested, there's an uncropped version of the original image here:
