You've caught her movement very well Walter and it still holds the same attraction as it did in the original. The light is splendid and the "detail" works well. Nicely done old chap!

V1 is an excellent crop, it focuses attention on a very loving craft skill, passed down by women through generations. The poise in that hand is so beautiful.
I can see why you wanted to get rid of the yellow panel. A slight criticism - there is some haloing, and the processing has softened the left hand edge of the lady's scarf and sleeve.

I missed the original, but this is a very good crop. I like the negative space and her direction of gaze... they give a strong focus on her hands.

The close up is wonderful - showing such dedication to the bread making.
The bowed head and the raised hand are like giving a blessing.

Yes, I see it now. I got a bit sloppy with my PS brush when applying the Photoshop "Field Blur" to the background around the scarf. Thanks for pointing this out. Before I do any printing (where it will really show up), I'm going to clean that up.

I like this better than the original . I don't mind the blurr at all . I thought that was because it was quickly shot through the window . Doesn't detract from the crop at all xx
