I love the muted tones and grainy aspect. Very creative presentation. And she is REALLY a cute little girl.

What a sweet little face and truly adorable . . although I have found they have little fingers that can unplug a running drive or put a D700 onto Manual unseen ! I like all the inner processing but not the border here.

The soft tone and the framing makes it very special, something like an old polaroid-photo. But, sorry to say, it doesn´t appeal to my sense of feeling. I think it´s to "gey" in an uniteresting way.
