Welcome aboard Adao. Excellent job throughout. The new matte gives it just enough tones to make it pop. Super job on the dress too.

Excellent job cleaning this one up and also adjusting the lighting and folds on the gown. Cloning in lace sections has fulfilled the requirement to emphasize this part of the photo - well done.

The fingers of the baby's left hand are "shortened". Part of the wood on the left chair arm has been cleaned away as has the crown of the chair back - easy to do if youre zoomed in too close.

Hi, thanks for the comments. This photo took a little over two hrs. My first for curves and make something new from photo (lace) to put into the photo. Thank you Tom, great eye for detail, I'll be sure to watch for little things like that and not to zoom to close, which i normally do. Thanks again.

Wow. Love what you did with the lace on the dress. Will be reading your technique closely to see if I can do it as well. Photo looks great. Thanks for working on it. JoyceR

An excellent painterly version. Reminds me a bit of some of Wanda Schwind's early work here (not a bad thing).

Chair seems too photographic compared to the rest, and the cropping makes the dress more important than the baby.
