Thanks, the cropped version looks almost like a whole different shot, haha... Crop is such a wonderful tool...

Your version is intriguing. I like the softness of it. How did you manage that? It's a bit to dark in my taste, though.

It is a little dark just added a orton type effect in elements real easy to do in about five steps then you need to play with the levels to get the brighness right.
