    Did you alter eye color in PS?
    I like the idea overall, but I agree that the crop is a bit tight.

    The pic was originally a mere snapshot, but I liked the pose so much I tried to improve the snap.

    The eyes were indeed heavily PS'ed and the vignette was accomplished with PS. I deliberately tried for a tight crop and the crop is still not tight enough. If I were to cropp the right margin again until the Mother's eyes were placed in the upper right intersect quadrant, the "rule of thirds" would be more obvious. My intentions were to crop in such a way that both sets of eyes would occupy a quadrant intersection

    It would be easy to add more margins since there's no information at the edges. Simply increase the size of the canvas and airbrush the increased area.
