You people do such lovely pait effects. My niche leans more to the commercial art look. As said above, this photo does have some flaws and if I had to use it in an ad or brochure, here's what I would do to make it a little more appealing. It's an old trick to recrop, frame the subject and blur the background, but the technique lends itself to this photo. Anything to draw the eye away from that locked elbow. <wink>.

Also, this technique took about 3 minutes to complete. When time is money, that bears some consideration too.

Still looks like a Wyeth to me.

Here's another look.
