great job...I really like the border. If you do frame it how will you matt it? will you matt away your border or keep you border intact?

I think that you did a great job, that your daughter is both your wife's and your pride and joy, shows through.

All I can say, is wow, really well done shot. It is set up like a portrait, but it just screams candid, and I can feel the love oozing out of it.

Thank you all for your great response. It only confirms what I suspected, this ones a keeper!

Just to give you a little more detail on the photo.

I had to do some work in Photoshop on this one. I shot it with my cameras build in flash (something I hate doing!). I had no choice though. Thankfully there was no red-eye. However there was some ugly shadows that I had to retouch out. The biggest retouch was the background. Behind my daughters head was some very distracting wallpaper! This I had to select and blur out. It was a little tricky to get it right but I knew it would pay off. There is also another area bottom left that the background showed through that got blurred out too.

I should be able to get this one printed pretty big and have it framed. It will look great in the living room! I'll keep the border too as I think it makes it look more pro.
