Max- I love the before and after shot of the picture. You did a remarkable job with clearing the picture and letting us concentrate on the elegance of the bouquet of flowers and the shoes. Creative and done with a masters touch, you brought out the beauty of the flowers and the setting is awesome. Love the vivid colors and especially what you did with that background.
Amazing work my friend.
Have a fabulous day, take care, enjoy. #7834524
