Congratulations on TT. I love the combination of vintage and manipulation (I was wondering about Neat's point though). I LOVE your 'family album', what a cool collection of characters.

I think the inclusion of the broad band of ornate frame at the bottom is very clever - seems more like an extension of her dress than a frame and draws her face down even more. Congratulations on the top ten, Mark.

So are you saying this is a photo of a photo, is that legal?

Still well done!

My first pick of the realistic ones, this is so charming...& so wierdly unsettling.

Charming and I love the title. The sepia tones are just right for this - looks like an old tin type. Voted earlier.

She looks pretty funny with her face deformed. I like it a lot. Nice tones and nice blue eyes.
