Waiting for her turn...
 
... to get a piece of ice cream cake.

Just a snap shot which I took at the party the other day. I think there is a focusing problem.

Hey Simon-

Thanks for your reply. I wanted her eyes a bit sharper. I was using a spot metering. I thought I should have used a center weighted metering instead. I guess that all depends on how you want to crop the pic and lighting conditions. But, again I'm new to this, so I'm not sure what I'm talking about. :p I just need to take more pics and do some experiments.

Here is the original. I switched to sepia as someone's shirt in the background was distracting. I tried a clone tool to get rid of it, but that was hard.

Here is an another shot of her. Again, sorry about the ugly background. :p

hiro you could clone the shirt out and add a little blur for the bakground if you use photoshop or elements however the sepia did a good job hiding it :D

the second shot would have been much better if you were face on to her and got the eye contact :)

No. :p I 'm just using ACDSee Pro since my friend gave me a copy, but it crashes a lot. :D I'm thinking about getting Elements 7 really soon.
