#2 is a winner indeed
Still, I'd select the background and move the slider in favour of the Cyan against Red at the Colour Balance, so that the cute blonde in magenta dress would further stand out imo.

Lovely photos.

Thanks for the input Guys!. Kind regards Graham

Robert, thanks for looking in, yes I just love the static in her hair!

Hello Bahadir, I did try that but tended to lose the hair in the background!

Alan thanks for the kind words, There were thousands of ducks in the river! (all yellow plastic ones). It's an Annual charity event where you pay to sponcer a numbered duck which are tipped into the river in the village & first one to the bottom of the river wins a prize of approx $2000!!

Oh, it only takes a few minutes to seleck the girl with the magnetic lasso tool and then inverse to do colour balance job. Don't need to replace the background at all! Hope this helps : )
