This image was taken on March 24th at 6:04pm. It was a nice day, but clouds were moving in quickly and it was beginning to rain.

Using a single focus point, I focused on her eyes at f/2.8.

Below is the original and edited versions, color and light adjustments were accomplished in Lightroom. I then took this image into Photoshop and separated the baby from the background in order to blur it more. She was way closer to the background than I would prefer, but sometimes you have to take the photo because 2 year olds have a mind of their own!
