I took this yesterday with my Fuji S5000. I adjusted the green level down just a touch, as it had a real slight tint to it, and used a slight bit of unsharp mask. She was sitting in my lap when I took this, which was interesting trying to get her still enough to take this.:-)



I played around in photoshop a bit with trying to take some of the reflection out of her eyes, but I never liked the results I got as well as just leaving the reflection in, so I decided to just leave it as is. :-)

I don't have an issue with getting my daughters to sit still for a picture but getting my oldest to give a decent smile has been my problem.

Great shot! Impressive that she smiled! What grade is she in?

I know if my dad asked me to smile for the camera I'd put my fingers over my face, prolly because I'm an oh-so-high-and-mighty teenager!

Great shot, keep it up!

Frank, thanks for the kind words, and, after my experiments with the eye reflections, my conclusion is the same as your advice. No matter what I did, I never made it look better.

Amy, thanks for the comments as well, although, after seeing your photos, I don't think you have a problemsmiling at all. I bet you're too much of a "cut-up" to keep from smiling for very long, even if it were your dad putting you up to it!:-) Maddie is seven and she'll be in second grade this year.
