    I love this shot personally accept for the lens flare that I think wrecks the whole shot :(

    Am I crazy or is this one only destined for the family photo album as nothing more than a sanpshot? (my wife in the pic ;) )

    Wicked lens flare... I love it, but then i am a big fan of lens flare when it comes off like this. In a photo like this it adds depth and mood... just my take on it...

    Tricky little girl! :D

    Your avatar suits the attitude perfectly. It's the best I've seen so far!

    It's you in the pic though, right?

    I also enjoy lens flare. Generally it is tough making it a likable element in a photo. In this case I think it helps. I am having a hard time with seeing the back of everyones' head and no band.

    i personally prefer without lens flare, shows more of the content of the picture,there is nothing wrong with it, just preference, in fact ps has a facility for adding lens flare, i agree with craig about the back of the head. and seeing more of the content of the background, as for the edit,photoshop clonestamp i presume! not a bad job atall...
