I much prefer this - it's softer, gentler. The background is quietly mottled, and no distraction. The lady has soft, fly-away hair and it's horribly difficult to isolate that against a new background, hence your harsh edges yesterday.
Good to crop off the distracting hand too, and concentrate on the face.

I like this one much better, lovely soft portrait full of stories, her eyes show a sadness but are also very kind eyes. Lovely

This works so much better. The whole portrait is softer and more flattering and probably reflects the lady's character more truly.

Now that is a face that has a lot of memories, both good and bad, etched on it. Lovely shot of this old lady. Andy

Lots of character in that face... but also a sense of tranquility. I would probably increase the contrast a little myself, but a super shot all the same. Smile

Super soft and gentle portrait. Some one said to increase the contrast and I am not sure that I would - I think that may introduce tones that are too sharp again. Love it just the way it is.
