Best Photograph Taken to Date

Film: The first photo contest I entered years ago when I won first place!  The photo was on the golf course at Bear Creek Park of the sun rising.  This first sparked my interest in the field of photography. 

Digital: Studio image taken at Ai of my sweet Grandbaby sitting in her little rocking chair.
