Beautifully done. The red costume and shoes are just wonderful. I love the faint ballerinas in the background. and the texture surrounding the little girl really does convey "dreaming". Just wonderful. I bet she loves this.

Hi Roger,thanks for taking the time to do a mod on this one.A touch on the bright side tbh which loses the 'dream' quality for me.Nice to see how others see the image though.

Like it Janet , but for me the background is too distracting, in as much as theres enough going on in the pic for me without adding further things. But i like the overall theme.
