Photo #14: Those amazing eyes

I haven’t posted a photograph in a while because I haven’t been actively taking any shots. Last night while going through some of my old photos, I came across this image of Maya, the daughter of my first cousin. She is an absolute delight, and a photographers dream subject.

I have many photos of her in completely natural poses; and every one contains a smile. Now that’s unusual for kids.

Anyway the first photo is the one I shot in colour some time last year. I cropped it very tightly because I wanted those magnificent eyes to be a focal point. I used a Yellow filter available in Windows Live Photo Gallery on the same photo to get the effect you see in the next image. I think the yellow filter somehow accentuates those eyes.
