I thought this picture was going to be a waste...I was playing at the moment I took it, just trying to decide on lighting, and used the flash. It totally washed it out. When I was processing my raw files I decided to try it black and white, I like a really light b&w sometimes. Well, once I played with it a bit, I realized how much I loved the picture, so I went back and processed it in color as well. I can't decide which way I like it better. It is definitely more washed out then I typically like my colors to be, but I like how the background colors are so deep.

I think it went from a "waste" to adorable! (Helps that I had an adorable subject!)
