I took this picture of our niece, in what appears to be a contemplative mood. This was shot Christmas eve, actually after a few glasses of wine.
Her classical features and the dreamy quality of her expression lends itself well to sepia tones. And her name really is Amber.

Nikon Coolpix S500 point and shoot camera.

    I may be slow to this but very well done, your lighting is great, the mood captures works perfectly and congratulations on a very well deserved feature.

  • Very nice compliment, Michael.
    Another niece! Although this looks very poetic, I think she was actually a little drunk! This family likes their wine – and it was just after everyone finished opening Christmas presents and things settled down.
