My tribute to Dolly

Tomorrow there will be a memorial service for my lovely ladies. I wasn't really pleased with the first one I did of Miss Dolly, so I created this one instead. Dolly was very camera shy, but she really liked this photo. I planned to make a gift of it to the nurses at home health who took such excellent care of both sisters, Dolly and Bluebell. If you see anything that could be improved, please don't be shy.
Thanks,
Linda R

Linda - Very nice style and nicely done. however it would have been nice to have seen the original.

The shadow on her hair seems too intense to me. It would look more balanced if similiar to the arm shadow in my opinion. There is also a blurred area on top of her right shoulder. A slight crop on her right would balance the overall image a bit.

Re: My tribute to Dolly

You nailed it again. She definitely was one of a kind. Oh the stories I could tell. She and her sister Bluebell came to live with me for a spell after Hurricane Rita. Actually they stayed with me several times, considering this their home away from home. Bluebell was an artist, and Dolly liked to express herself in words.
I miss them fiercely.
