Creative Portraits: Ali on steps

It's been awhile since I posted a pic of my daughter to work on. I'll bet there will be some creative interpretations of this one.

Have fun!

You must be a mind reader Danny, the last Ali photo has just had more added to it and i thought she would of grown up more by now and she has.
Lovely photo of a very pretty girl
And i expect there will be loads of interpretations

She's beautiful Danny!

Had to do some contortions for the cameo pendant.

All great, John's a fabulous monochrome for Valentine's Day, no? but Jordan's was incredible. No less so was Kyle's. That's really a teriffic use of digital editing... A++ for originality.

You not the first person to call me Kyle Veronica; lol

Thanks for the comments by the way. Sort of branching from my wax phase (as a few of you already know about my binge). Similar technique, so why not.

I hate dentists. Go to your happy place Ali!
Sorry it's a meditation joke.

thank you Veronica!

nice one Alex, love the colors
Joe- nice change of background (hey- you didn't flip her)
Lyle-very cool cameo
May I suggest it would be even more convincing if it was whiter? Just a thought.
