    Thanks guys for your response. Now Im not sure about the original. Its a glass plate and I assumed the black diagonal line was the separation of the two pieces and it was a crack. After examining Slocums face however, what I originally did was slide the one section close to the other. If it was a separation that would be ok. But Im thinking now the black is something else. If anyone is familiar with glass plate photos and can explain to me what that black line is Id sure appreciate that. On this pic I redid it and just filled in the black leaving the parts on the other side of the line in place as they were. The difference is subtle and leaves Slocum slightly less beady eyed. In the original his left eye looks too close to his nose.
