Added another layer and put 2% gaussian/mono noise, with a mask taken from the red channel.

A slight curves adjustment layer to play with look too ......

Now, if I can just get a chance to get at the hair.

this one is my favorite so far, but they're all gorgeous

It's not only that, a lot of people get judgmental about young girls and photography. When you put the words "young girl" and photograph in the same sentence, and you happen to be male, you're close to getting branded by misinformed, misguided, or outright paranoid people.

Car photographers aren't sexually attracted to cars; nature photographers aren't sexually attracted to nature; pet photographers aren't sexually attracted to pets; yet, there's an often ill made assumption that photography involving "young girls" is automatically sexual.

It's kind of creepy people default to that frame of thought; and makes me wonder what is going on in "their" head.
