I heart faces - no flash

I made seventh place last week! Yay! There are hundreds of people who enter these contests and I've entered 3 times and have made the top ten twice already. How lucky! Thanks for all the congrats.

This week's challenge is "no Flash". Join in here. I very rarely ever use flash anyway. I much prefer natural light.

So I figured I'd just chose a recent photo that I like. I took this one of Lana last week.







And I'll do the adult one again too. I don't take a whole lot of adult photos, but here's one from a wedding. I love backlight/sunflares. It gives a bit of a heavenly feel.

Wow - congrats on getting selected so much.

Amazing photos and I enjoyed reading your processing on the fix-it friday post. Most of it is currently beyond my photoshop abilities, but it gives me something to aspire to!
