I Heart Faces: A Touch of Sun

For six months, I haven't been able to decide if this is a "good" picture.  Let's be honest: it's totally overexposed and the contrast is entirely too harsh.  One eye is practically lost to the shadows.

But there's still something I find captivating about it... the sparkle and intensity of his gaze; the way the light plays off those long eyelashes; how it highlights that fuzzy perfection of baby skin.  Melt.

So, while I might not consider it a technical success, I couldn't help but enter it in the I Heart Faces challenge this week: Touch of Sun.  Click the photo to see it in better resolution, and thanks for looking!
