[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
They're two little kids who live along the coastal areas of Iligan Bay,Lanao Del Norte, Philippines. Daughters of a poor fisherman.(probably their first time to see a camera)..Too much of a hard life for such innocent beings.
Amidst all, the genuine little joys are reflected into an image that bursts with young tender smiles.

these are my steps in PS.values depend on your taste.

made two copies of the image in different exposures

i noticed that the eyes looked unrealistic, over done in the enhancements maybe. but the angle of their heads are framed nicely, good composition.

the photo gives off an eerie feeling like they are little devils in disguise. that otherworldly glow in their eyes reminds me of the vampire cullen in the twilight series. if this is your intention to give off that menacing quality to them then you have succeded. congratulations.
