I had seen this young lady several times during the afternoon before I took this photo. She was not only poised but also very graceful and kind to the smaller children. She seemed to be so mature beyond her young years.
In this photo, I wanted to capture her stare. She was not afraid to look straight at you.

Lightroom—Set white and black points, added mid-tone contrast, added overall clarity and vibrance to image and adjusted brightness, clarity and sharpness of eyes.
