Lord of the Flies by melaniumom Lord of the Flies by melaniumom
Taken outdoors while the sun was setting. I used a combination of a diffused glow and a moonlight filter while leaving the eyes as they were to achive this effect.

P.S. There are a couple people that I told I would do some things for - edit some photos and type soemthing up - Sorry for the delay! My husband was out of town for about a week and I had the computer all to myself, but he got back a few days ago and has been hogging up my computer time again! LOL I will do it, though.... promise!

Hi! I run a blog that has photos of faces for artist reference: [link]

Could I post this photo on it? All I would need is the first name of the person in the picture (or it can be anonymous if you prefer), and I would credit you for the photo and include a link to your dA account.

I can't believe I keep forgetting to favorite this. I absolutely love the feel of this photo. The soft colors of the sun in his eyes and the calm expression on his face. He's absolutely adorable. He has the prettiest eyes I've ever seen on a boy. So beautiful!

Very nice. Usually I love a background that doesn't have that much going on but the depth of field is perfect and I love how all of the attention is on the boy.
It's such a great picture.

This is actually one of the very first, REAL photos I took. It is the one that inspired me to get into photography. I went back to it today and applied what I have learned in my editing to try and achieve something different. This is definitely a favorite of mine! I took it in July 2004.
