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. #1389256
