Beautiful model and portrait! Is the beveled edge around the whole photo and just get's lost on BP? I can see it on the bottom and the left side. It's distracting to me that I can't see it all the way around. #7889739

Bobby R. Strange August 26, 2009

If I were using the newer bp gallery type with the dark background, you'd be able to see it all the way around to some degree. But I've always favored the classic gallery :) #7889961

Thanks all. And Rita, it was meant to be smoother than I would normally do. Was going a little beyond realistic here :) #7894027
