Thanks for the input Roger, and again, Leah. You people have eagle eyes! I didn't even notice the "shadow" until after I saved a .jpg version, and I didn't think anyone would notice. It was unintentional!! It is the result of pasting a saved selection. I still haven't figured that one out. The shadow has long since been removed. When I did notice it, I immediately had the same feeling as Leah --- it's too high to keep!
Vikki asked about the man's eye, and I forgot to reply to that. That's his natural eye. I have another portrait of the man, with different lighting. The eye appears much worse on that one.
