    Very nice job Jasmine.. Portraits are very difficult (at least for me). I think you did very well here.

    One of the most important things in a portrait is getting the distance between the eyes just right. The formula is one eye ball distance between them. With AR you can fix this very easily. The colors and blending look good, portraits are hard, real hard....................

    I want to thank you all for sweet, encouraging comments.

    Barn, you are so kind.

    Tony, I thank you and will keep in mind what you told me, I looked at this portrait so many times and dind't see it. It reminded of me and Hubby working in the same company, I would be stuck in some weird things (computer sciences) and would ask him to look at it, he would find something wrong within the 1st minute! Thanks again Tony.

    Wenkat - Thanks so much.

    Pat - Thank you sweet Pat.

    Linn - So appreciated your words.

    javier - I have a long way to go and thanks for the encouraging words.

    eighty+ - What can I say? You are so sweet.
