Woody, I'm glad you feel comfortable enough to tell us how your really feel.

Dennis, this is a picture that you will treasure. This is the one you will look at before walking out the door to drive to her wedding.

agree with Woody but maybe just a little deepening of value in her face. Seems a bit too bright here.

I'm with Roy, I don't believe the photo is in need of vignette as the field of flowers make a great BG. It's definitely a keeper!!!

This is a delighful image of a beautiful young lady. I feel a lot like Woody, print it and hang it up. Since you asked for some input I did play around with the image a little just to see what a few minor adjustments would do. First I went to levels and moved the right slider in until it contacted the data in your histogram. I then went to Brightness/Contrast and adjusted the contrast to +8 and brightness to -7. I then increased the saturation a little and lastly I sharpened it a little.

Tweaked version:

Your original for comparison:

Now the question to you is whether this is more to your liking. The original has a certain fragileness to it that is appealing. The light skin color and the more subtle colors give a sense of vulnerability to this lovely young girl. In the tweaked version she looks more confident and healthy IMHO. The choice is yours.

Dennis.......... this is a beautiful photograph............. in every way.

Innocence personified. Looking at Gordon's reworking and yours......... I prefer your original posted image........... saying that though, Gordon's version is also cool.

It's just that, for me, i feel the whole concept of the image............ suits your version better..............

Subtle and full of wonderment.

Exceptional work. :eek: :eek: :eek:
