Photoshop Contest: "Girl with A Pearl Earring" by Vermeer

I love Photoshop Contests. This is a terrific modification of Vermeer's classic "Girl with a Pearl Earring" for a UK jeweler. Great source material, of course. Vermeer, the painting, and the girl were popularized by Tracy Chevalier 's book with the same title as the painting. If you haven't read the book! It's a spare and sensitive fictional look at the servant girl in the painting and her role in Vermeer's household. The small 17th century city of Delft is portrayed with masterful precision. Chevalier invents a beautiful back story. You'll enjoy it. I didn't see the movie with Scarlett Johansson. Any of you?
