    A little girl I 'became friends with' at our local 4th of July parade. She had the sweetest smile and I just had to photograph her, even though she refused to pose since she was so adamant on collecting candy and watching the floats.

    I originally made the contrast a little stronger and added a very slight yellow filter, but I also tried a version with less contrast, and a slight blur to make her look softer. I think I like the first one better, but I'll let you guys decide. :)

    the litte girl is cute but the background is too bright and distracting to my opinion :)

    Nice find with a lot of excitement, but I had a problem telling where her cheek ended and the background began. One is better to me.

    First one for me too. Maybe a bit of burning in on the background might just take the edge off it

    The first one is definitely better, but I'm not a fan of the yellow.
