Did what I could.
If a task is once begun never leave it till it's done. Be the labor great or small, do it well or not at all.

I had a go at the faces. Wobbly photographers are the most difficult to recover from :)

My try. The bottom photo is the right size and the right one. But there's a small white square behind one of the ears that - try as I might - simply won't go away!
