Default First portrait

Group,

We lost our daughter (38 y.o.) last May to cancer. I am doing the attached for my wife (and me) for Christmas. Any tips before I give this a go?

Thanks,

Steve - Toledo

Sorry for your loss Steve. This is a great idea and you've done a good job so far. Your portrait is looking pretty good but not quite ready for cutting just yet. I hope you don't mind but I took the liberty of working on this portrait a little. Here is my attempt.

Paul,

Thanks for tweaking it. I know I am not finished. I have not looked for weak and unattached segments. Your version looks good.

Thanks,

Steve - Toledo
