This image was one which I put into the critique night last Thursday. Image 1 was the original and no. 2 is after the comments made.

Am still struggling with an earache (no not Ruth) so maybe haven't done enough with it in which case your comments would be
appreciated. Don't know why image 2 is before no. 1.

It's a really good image either way, but Version 2 does hone it a little bit further.
Best regards

I'm struggling to spot the differences between the two images.
What were the comments? And what have you changed?

Look at the bottom of the robes, the hem has been darkened to remove a distracting highlight.

Hi

Thanks to El Presidente (the fussy one) also toned down the front shoe and lightened the back one. It WAS a critique night
and I listened. The only question now is will it do well in a competition but then who knows?

Got it, thanks.
I didn't really notice it before, but now that you've pointed it out it is an improvement.
