Sourdough French Bread

(second post ever...sorry for the potentially retarded question :))

Does the crumb on this look correct? Obviously I was attempting a more open crumb, and tried to handle this loaf gently.  It was also a higher hydration dough than I had worked with previously.

All comments are welcome!  Thanks :)

Looks fine to me, although some of the holes are a little large ...but I like it that way.  The dough looks like it may have been a little on the wet side and I can see swirls in the dough.  Not sure what caused that.  Keep on trucking.  Sorry that nobody answered your question sooner!
