    A friend is completing her PhD in English specializing in Shakespeare. This is her favourite Sonnet with the focus on her favourite lines. I'm considering framing this as a graduation gift. I know the subject matter is unusually, but she is very passionate about Shakespeare!

    Can anyone offer thoughts? Is there any pp that you would do to this to enhance it?

    I think this is a great idea for a gift! It's very thoughtful and I think that your friend will love it.
    Is this a crop or is it the original? If it's a crop, do you mind posting the original please?

    If you can, you might consider playing with tones to bring out more highlights. It's probably just personal preference, but it seems a little dark and yellow.

    The shot itself is good though.

    I brightened it up a bit. Is this any better?

    I think that works better. It would be worth knocking back the red and yellow a little though.

    Definately an improvement.

    I think your idea of framing this as a graduation gift for a doctor in Shakespeare is creative, thoughtful, and an overall good idea. :)
