Laura said...

LOL @ your comment - yes there were a lot of children entered, but as you probably know since you have entered a picture of your son, children just have the most beautiful eyes and perfect skin. Your son has especially gorgeous eyes in this picture - bet you didn't have to photoshop it much. In your most recent entry to the zoo, I like the Silhouettes @ the aquarium windows - are you going to enter that next week?

Mom2J&I said...

Stunning!!!! Those eyes! Wow.

Esther said...

Nice job, love the editing on the eyes...beautiful clairty and not too overdone.
