    This "portrait" is actually a candid shot that I took at a wedding. The swirled background is actually the hair of the girls grandmother who was knelt down beside her. I "smudged" forever in Photoshop to get it to look like that, but I can't decide if it's still distracting...

      it has such an old-time feeling - almost like a hand-colored photo from the 50s. unbelievable that it isn't a portrait.

      I don't think the background is distracting. Her expression is lovely and the photo has a classic feel to it.

      I can appreciate it took a lot of effort to get this background from the original, but I do find it rather distracting. Still, one cannot deny that it's a great capture of her wonderful expression and poise, and yes, it does have that certain classic feel to it.

      The lighting is beautiful and her expression is perfect. Don't change a thing. I think you did very, very well.
