  1. Love the image but it seems a bit soft to me (esp. around the mouth)

    Conrad it has nice eyes and expression however the lighting is a bit flat for me.
  4. Thanks. For some reason, the entire image is a bit soft. When working with the RAW files. Everything is tack sharp. When I resized, unsharpen then saved it in JPG (10), the entire image lost it's sharpness. :confused: 

    I do love her eyes.


    I tend to like my images "bright" so I might have filled in too much of the shadows giving it that "flat" image.

    For me, I would have asked her remove the piercings.

    The piercings are fine to me and add to her personality.. the expression is great.

    But yeah, agree with others, I think a little more sharpness or contrast 'pop' is needed.

    Beautiful lady. I think I prefer the original crop more.
  8. I think it is a great shot. her eyes are very sharp and the colors are very good! the only thing I would say, is that you should make a third crop. keep it the same as your updated one, but crop it about half an inch to an inch below the tops of her shoulders.
  9. Definitely like it with more contrast, other than that, awesome pic.
