  2. Nice shots. Focus seems a bit soft in the first one, but I think a little sharpening might correct that. I really like the composition in both photos!

    Love the second shot, got atmosphere and a great look to it.
     
  5. Love the second one -- first one has nice composition but the lighting seems a tad flat. Also you might want to clone out the stray hair along her cheek in #2. Nice job :smile:
     
  6. I hope you don't mind, but here's the corrected version - just a little USM sharpening, and levels adjustment...

    I'll be glad to take this down if you like, but since you're still learning to edit photos, I just wanted to show you what can be done to the image in about 2 minutes with some basic techniques. If you want to really go at it, you could remove the stray hairs around and really experiment to get the colors to really pop.

    Did you forget to include the image Keith?
     
  8. Nah, it's fixed - I put it up, then had to take it down because I forgot to remove my "auto" watermark... :biggrin:

    Thanks.

    Thanks Simon and Ray.

    Keith, No worry I like to learn for you all here how to improve my photoshop skill. Have seen some real work and it does make the image different.

    The layer masking and USM is something new to me.

    Best Regards
