This is beautiful. I prefer this one too. There was a lot of noise in the last one although it didn't detract. But this one has more glow to it. There is a shininess/highlights in her hair that is very pretty. Her eyes appear a little more alive and sparkly. No noise but still great detail.......Sandy

I much prefer the previous, this one looks as though it has been overworked. It is much less real and less natural, which detracts and takes attention way from your daughters natural beauty. For me, a touch too much, but this is only my own myopic opinion.

I see what he means, but this is lovely, so was the original colour and mono.

I think I prefer this one (just) - the grain was interesting, but this has a smooth kind of glow to it that makes me think of fairies for some reason Wink

This is a superb poignant image that I like very much. I have done a mod not to improve the picture but to give it a different look. All I have done is to extend the canvas at top and right to give the girl more space to look into. You could extend even more if you wanted to. Andy

Both this and the original are excellent, I think I actually prefer the 'grainy' version, although the hair looks a little over sharpened.
