What a serene face she has
I think I would have cloned out the black ring
It seems a trifle heavy looking
And that's advice from someone that doesn't believe in playing around with a photo
Whoooop......

Your pov makes her look towards the right, Marian. I would therefore crop more on the left and add a bit more space to the right for her to look into, taking her away from the centre of the frame.
Otherwise there's a feeling of peace and serenity from her relaxed face.

Thanks Malc! I would've never thought of that. I am shortsighted so I don't really see details when shooting at such a distance. I don't have a good image with a larger space on the right. Sad

When I learn LR or PS I will venture on cloning large things like this halo. I am still a Picasa user and only clone out little things, like vultures and cables...Yuck!
Thanks for your comments and votes, I appreciate your input very much so I can improve my photos.
