In traditional Bengali wedding,the bridegroom comes to the girlís house to marry her.As the auspicious time approaches,4-5 male memberís of the bride family take her,seated on a low stool(piri), circuling round the groom 7 times to symbolize that the bride and bridegroom are now winded up securely to each other.Finally,the bride and bridegroom come face to face and removing the 2 betel leaves covering her face all this while, make their first eye-contact, called Shubha Drishti.The two then exchange garlands,a ritual called Mala Baadal

Beautiful expression on this beautiful young lady Debu, also a great explanation of the marriage tradition. You still seem to have a problem with the cutting out, there are some very sharp edges there and also on the right side some of the original photo is showing, to soften the sharp edge go around just the sharp edge with the blur tool, this should do the trick. There is a very good program called Topaz Remask you can buy, it is excellent for cutting out from backgrounds, you can download a free trial to try it, hope this helps.

Regards

Trev.
