Hit Me With Your Best Shot!

This week at i Heart Faces is really special. They are requesting the very best closeup face photos from both amateurs (that's me!) and professionals. The winners will be published in an i Heart Faces photobook by Blurb!

Thank you to everyone who responded to my cry for help in choosing which of my top 5 face photos to enter (prizes will be awarded soon!). Although many of you liked Ms. Smartypants in braids, and a few liked Beauty's photos, a huge majority of you voted for this photo of the little Beast:

I hope we made the right choice!




I am submitting this photo into the www.iheartfaces.com Blurb Book photo contest. I am granting I ♥ Faces permission to use my photo in a printed version of a book for commercial use and possibly advertising of a photo book on both the Blurb and I ♥ Faces web sites.

LOVE your choice! Have a similar photo of our boy from a few years back and it's always been one of my favs. Love the clarity. And those eyes - how can you ever tell that face no?! :)

How fun! Good luck with your entry.

On another note, I'm not sure if you had a chance to check out the e-mails I sent. Are you still in for Chick Chat this Wednesday? If you could please drop me a line sometime tonight or tomorrow and confirm that would be great!

Since it was a winner before, I think it's the right choice!!! Love that picture. I still think it was cool that it was featured in a color-changing tutorial! The Beast is famous!!

But I DID love Ms. Smartypants in braids. That was my first choice! : )

American in Norway said...

Great choice! Love that face & those eyes!

Cute! I love the framing of his face and he has beautiful eyes!

If you don't make it into at least the top ten, there's something wrong with the judges! Really.
