I looked when you had both loaded and could see no difference? It's a fantastic image, and if something bugged you, it's better that you re-loaded it. Good luck with it! Now get some sleep :))) #7355303

I can't!! I must finish one job that I never started!! :-))
There was a dirty spot from the clothe between her feet. I noticed it only when I compressed to jpeg and posted. Maybe I need to do some laundry, Betsy!! LOL
Thank you Betsy for your continuing support!! I love that image too and the girl she is really beautiful. I will put more on the next days!!! #7355330

I still could'nt see it :) White is always a problem...I use a wooden painted infinity curve and after each shoot it has to be washed.
