    I was told (and I agree) that this needs to be a little less exposed and the top left of the picture is distracting. What could you Photoshop experts turn up with this. I thank you in advance.

    OK, I tried with only two steps: lasso tool around outer part with the feather set to 180px to darken that part. Then lasso tool to the inner part (same feather settings, those are my own standard feather settings, mind) to push the highlights and darks a little. Ah, and after that I applied USM at 30% and a radius of 0,5px.

    Look:

    Do you think it is ok?

    I just did some blending around the middle so its all (closer) to being uniformed and darkened it up a little. I kind of kike the middle bothways now that I look at it!
