silent serenade

By beckas  
I took this portrait about a month ago, but it didn't feel quite finished to me. I had another play with the photo yesterday and now I am satisfied with the result.

Gee whiz this is good, really good in fact. I can't decide between version 1 and 2, you've done a superb job with the tweaks, excellent work..

Deserves every single click, and more in my opinion.

Nice one Becka.
