    This is so old fashioned. You did a great job on making this from the era it came from. Looks like this came from one of the old brownie cameras. Just one suggestion is that a tent in the right hand corner? I believe it is maybe you could just crop it down a little. My eye goes to the right. Hope you don't mind.

Thank you Patricia. Yes, that is a tent and it is a bit of a distraction. Thanks for the tip. Here is the change.
