    Daisy's third birthday

    I used my Nikon 105 mm macro lens and was very surprised to see myself and the tripod reflected in Daisy'sleft eye. I linked to the large size on my flickr account. The reflection is very visible in the original image size view full screen

    She is beautiful and the composition is great. Looks like she was having a good old afternoon snooze.

    Happy Birthday to Daisy! I love the window light filtering through. I really like her pose, looking to you but head not straight on to the camera... she seems comfortable and content. And your reflection is kind of symbolic... very nice photo

    One thing I think I'd try with the photo is to lighten the image at her eyes and face and create a subtle vignette... the way I usually do this if using PS is to create a brightness adjustment layer to lighten the entire image and then use a radial gradient outward from the eyes with an overlay blend to get the vignette centred where I want it over the eyes/face. I find the effect is usually a subtle brightening of the eyes and face to draw more attention.
