Little Imp

By Mavis
I saw this lovely child at a Bazaar on Saturday afternoon . I just had to take her. Taken by available light from the window . . The background was so busy as bazaars usually are so made a copy, desaturated it . Then blurred it . I then cut her out from the original and put her on the blurred background . Hope you enjoy .

Nice portrait, the lighting is just right. She does look rather cut out though, with a little more work on the cut-out it would be perfect.Beautiful eyes.

Jude you are quite welcome to have a go at this one. My son came in and thought he could make it better a few minutes ago and then realized how much work I'd done on it . Smile) x

Mavis, as I said it's a near perfect portrait. Just offering a little friendly advice as I saw the shot on opening it.
