498--Perhaps I'm not making myself clear, part deux

Now watch how the image changes for the better when I re-color much of her uniform, then throw a bunch of black into what one might call the crook of her elbow, thus separating the arm from the rest of the body and pulling the composition together in a manner perhaps a bit too aggressive for me but which is, nonetheless, felicitous.

And even after all this, there's still one big surprise.
