Smile!

I mentioned I'd been editing some recent photos. I was going to discard this as I'd forgotten to change to a lower ISO and the result was blown highlights. I had a little fiddle with it, converting to B&W and adding a bit of glow...and liked the result. I think she has the most amazing smile!

I had an accident with some hair removing cream yesterday. I won't say anymore but when I told Phil he laughed harder than I have ever seen him laugh before :( My mum used to say it was cruel to mock the afflicted!!

As being descended directly from apes, I'm lower on the evolutionary scale than most and an overabundance of hair has plagued me most of my life. What I'm trying to say is that I can totally RELATE....

And the young lady in the photo does have a very warm, genuine smile.

wow...that edit is gorgeous and yes she does have an engaging smile. Years ago, my sister had an interesting moment with some hair rmeoving cream too, it involved her bikini line and visitors arriving early! haha!

Lovely girl, and the photo is a wonderful "save" from one you might have tossed into the digital trash can.

Did you mistake the hair removal cream for shampoo while in the shower? (Lather, rinse, repeat)

I'm very glad you didn't get rid of this lovely photo!

Hope whatever hair you nearly removed grows back!

Her smile and the highlights really make this a winner. Glad you didn't discard it.
