I have the opportunity to join in on a print competition this Sunday, which means I have to order tomorrow and request Saturday delivery if I decided to enter this image.

Anyway, here are 2 different presentations- and I am not sold on it. I haven't go thru all of the steps I would usually do, retouching, etc. because I am not sure it is worth the time and effort-

anyway, your (quick!) suggestions and opinions are welcome... no title yet either.

It's beautiful! Her right hand might be a tad too close to the edge. Love the image though.

No, not blown out and no burning/dodging has been done yet. I also think I need to fix the flyaway hair ....

Keith, I know you and I have talked about this one- and her hair. But what about this presentation?

My opinion may not be of much value, but I'd go for the second one too. I like the airy feeling that the edge treatment adds.

#2 but left side seems to be too empty for me... maybe some layer and texture magic to fill in the space.

Hi Jackie;

I like Rapunzel but hate the black, out of key, border. Here is how I see it being presented.

D. Craig,

The black "out-of-key" part of the image is NOT part of the image, only a border to see where the edges of the image are. The black border is a resizing action that adds the border to the image-

Jackie,

I love Rapunzel, especially as it is presented here. The title is perfect for this little girl. I am hoping Keith responds to this one here, I am interested in seeing what he has to say!

You are really good with the presentations of your images!

Great Job! Let us know how you do!
