I took this picture this afternoon, it is of one of my daughters dressed up as a princess, or a nun or something, its hard to tell with them.

As you can see the pic is of her reflectiononthe blue plastic of our chartiesbingo machine, personally I like the shot, its something different to took at.

The challenge is to convert the image into a picture showing realistic skin tones and a black background, and not to disfigure my daughter face in the image.

You may edit the picture how you wish, the onlythree rules are the above.

My best attempt can be seem below, see if you can better it, and if you can, share your technique with everyone else please.

I look forward to seeing your attempts.

I like it so much as a reflected image, I left it that way.
