Tom excellent job removing the plant! With it gone I like the central composition...good contrast...and great spotlight effect! Just an idea...if you want to you could darken the hallway all the way and really isolate your subject...imho only...this is a big improvement! Sorry about not being back sooner, you blink an eye and 6 mo's go by...my bad...Happy New Year Tom!
