The second shot I posted on chromasia was a portrait of me and Rhowan, taken about a month before her second birthday, and I've posted numerous shots of her since. This one though was taken today as she celebrated her seventh birthday with her friends.

If you're interested, the original is here:

.../archives/now_we_are_seven.php

The processing was relatively straightforward and involved a black and white conversion using the Channel Mixer (see this tutorial) and a masked Curve to lighten her eyes (see this one too).

As always, I'd be interested to hear your thoughts.
