hmm,
not a big deal.

i'm wondering if it went jaggedy cause of the scanner, or was it a photoshop thing.

i'm wondering, cause the original is film.

anyhoo. c'est tout.

just so no one thinks your_waitress is seeing things: there WERE wisps of hair! i tidies this up a little and the hair disappeared as a side effect.

Wow - outstanding shot! Very powerful and beautiful. I really like the way each of them is looking away wistfully.
