Default Daddy's girl grown up

My 20 year old is coming home from Nashville tonight for Easter break & I had to post this photo taken just before she went off to college. There is a lot wrong with it, I'm sure, but I love it! She's wearing my old Ray Ban's from college days and was just walking through our pasture,picking up dandelions & blowing them into the wind. I even love the reflection of the sun from the sunglasses on her cheek, although some would consider it a flaw, I'm sure.

Great capture
(although I would clone out the single hair strand on the glass - but no biggy)

Thanks, NHL. I thought about editing out the strand of hair as well, think I might do that & see how I like it.

Jerry, I vote to leave the hair as is. I think it gives something to the pic that I can't really explane, but it is nice as is. IMHO....Frank

Thanks, Ordo. The nice thing about this pic is that it was truly candid. We were just outside enjoying the beautiful day and I had my camera to try to get some wildflower shots in my pasture. She came out just to be with me & started blowing dandelions. The shot just happened. I love that about photography.

I waffle back and forth on that, but it is kind of "in character" for who she is: artsy, messy, and adorable, in my very biased father's opinion.

Thanks all on the nice comments.
