At first I thought crop - but I think it would lose the significance. I love that expression, it looks as if she's counting the beats to the music for her next step, or even looking for somebody's cue. Well caught, it is lovelySmileCat

You got it Cat. Tender is meant to imply vulnerability. A crop doesn't work. She is looking for her dance coach far stage right. I added to the darkness (By Vab's suggestion, thanks Vab) which was present because she was directly in front of the left wing which was darkened.

This is much better. Still gives the feeling of a wee one on a big stage, but now she has more room around her head and where she is looking. she is a cutie in that dress! viv
