Nice capture, Kalena. The Lensbaby adds an interesting effect on the edge. You might try darkening the edges up a little bit with a vignette; it would help focus the viewers eyes on the angel. #10235682

Thanks, Paul, I dd put some vignette on the photo, but not too much. I had quite a bit of blur there to te the fewer to the center of the photo, but I went back and looked at the photo. I think you are right! I should add a bit more vignette that I have already. :-)
