When I got home from picking Macy up from school this afternoon, Delaney was sitting at the kitchen island doing her homework. My camera was nearby so I picked it up and started shooting. She eventually looked up the afternoon light caught her hair and eyes. I got several nice shots of her but this one grabbed me. I think it's the way the shadows are so dramatic and the way her eyes pop. I did a little higher level editing with this one but not hard core. Just some brush strokes here and there to enhance her face. I shot a bunch initially at 1/80 but because of the high dynamic range, her face was completely blown out. Even at this speed, her chin was still too light so I killed the highlights a bit. But I think this is to date, my best pic of the year.
