That's no glance, but it is a beautiful stare. Very nicely done, Roseann. #244019

Roseann E. Dreasher May 02, 2005

thanks Ron! #1313235

Adam Bolt May 02, 2005

Very nicely shot. Love the lines of the material that covers the girls face. It is also nicely blurred so that it doesnt take away from the girls magical eyes. The only thing that I would have liked to have seen is a little more cropped off from the top. To me there is just too much blank space.

Cheers Adam #1313468

Roseann E. Dreasher May 02, 2005

Thanks Adam. I tried cropping and that dang wrap just took over! I appreciate your suggestion though... #1313524
