Thanks for looking and commenting Alan. Different perspectives are
valuable. I did miss the detail of the necklace. That is why pros have
stylists and make up artists and assistants ;-)
The even light is intentional of course. Look at any 50 random Harper's
Bazaar covers. I like the those remaining stray hairs personally but I
agree that you won't see them on those 50 covers ;-)
