    The first and last are my favorites, Warren, especially the last one compositionally. I wonder if you could lighten her face just a little and tone done the background highlights, again, just a little. The detail in the background tree is pulling me away from her face.

    I touched up #5 like you suggested Dane. How does that one suit you now?

    I like that shot a lot - hard for me to pinpoint exactly why. Mind if I play with it a bit?

    Go Ahead. I would like to see what you have in mind. It was kind of hard trying to adjust the two to balance without completely washing out her face and killing the tree.

    Not sure if this is a major improvement or not, but done quickly. Might like to spend more time with it later...
