Babe Ruth

I'll call this photo "Babe In Arms"!

The Babe

Is it possible for you to send me your fixed copy that size? If so my email is , I sure would appreciate it. It seems like you really know you way around photoshop, such subtle differences sometimes make all the difference!

Babe Ruth

I'm surprised I'm the only commenter on this. It's a phenomenal photograph, and I see you cleaned it up some. I have the same pic but it has a white line across half the picture. Is it possible that you have a larger size photo of this? like something like 4,000 x 4,000? Just a shot in the dark.

[This jpeg was made from a tiff 5235 pixels wide x 4209 pixels deep. - Dave]
