I could not resist. For me the strongest thing in this photo is :
- the finger in the book
- the dog with it's pawn on her lap
- the bit tilted pose of her head
I created this WS to show how the photo would be cropped around these things. I think the action is more in focus.
Hmmm, I'm not sure about this one, tried some creative play, added glow grain and blur, the border more simple and smaller...
Still think you have a very good result, but the image is worth the try, maybe in the future a lucky creative creation?
Have fun with it, Richard
