Taking something and making it my own makes gives me such a rush of satisfaction. There is something about the control factor I guess? It's the same way with being able to edit pictures.
This was taken at a friend's princess birthday party. There is a lot going on in this picture. All the bright colors...the ugly floor...and a princess who would not be still or look at the camera. (I think I have scarred her for life)
After cropping the face, I used the Straighten mode to un-tilt her head a bit. Then used the soft focus.
I love this picture.
(If she were only this angelic all of the time :)
