    That's it! You've insulted Lady D. We are no longer friends!

    I doubt it is LADY D who our spiffy Beth doesn't like.
    It may, however, be the photo she thinks is not perfect.
    I tend to think that there are too many bright spots forming the background when it would be a lot better with a more uniformly DARK background.
    And your Lady D has a halo, and something funny is going on around her nose...

    Yeah I did a crappy job of adding the gaussin blur to the background. I didn't really notice how crap it looked until I posted it. Funny how that works. I guess if I was going to bother doing it I should have spent more time and tried to do it right. I was just so excited to post my first B&W scans I must have rushed. Here's the original. I love how she looks, I just wished I would have used a larger aperture.

    You could continue working on the blurred background (helps the photo!), but when all that is done perfectly, I personally would also consider a different crop, less headroom and also less room on the left. Her face is so centred just now.

    Alright, I think I improved it some with this edit.

    your edit looks better, but you did something to her nose? snipped it at the tip or something?
