    Hi David
    Same as the foot, another precious image - although I think it lacks some contrast and is a little under exposed.

    Thanks - i tried increasing the contrast but it blows out the folds in her top just below the chin. They're then the brightest part of the image and quite distracting.

    For whichever reason, this photo stops loading for me after 2/3 ... did so earlier on and still does so. A pity. I'd love to see all of little Samantha!

    This shot is actually upside down!!
    She was lying on my girlfriend's lap and looking to my left since i was facing my girlfriend.
    I knew that if i moved then so would Samantha and i'd also be in my own light reducing the reflection in her eye (the reflection is the window)
    So i shot it upside down and rotated it in Photoshop later in.
    It looks as though she's standing or sitting up and I'm looking down on her but she's actually lying on her back!!:mrgreen:

    A quick layer mask to protect the highlights is all that's needed.

    Thanks EOS

    Thankfully i shoot in RAW with small jpg so i went back to the original RAW image and had another tweak at it. It looks better with the brightness pushed up a little and the contrast adjusted simlarly.
    It's a bit late so I'll probably re-post another version over the next day or two.

    Cheers
    David
