Creative Portraits - Sitting Pretty

Well Steve I managed to use the title.
I've had this one for absolutely AGES, and could never get anything I liked out of it.
I hope this is better than other attempts I've done.

The first is the original resized for here.

Full size original version here:-

Larger version of my try here:-

All thats left now is to get those creative juices going - enjoy.

Peter
