Beautiful eyes. Love the hair detail.

Perhaps a little more attention to the skin on the fill side could make it better, but that depends on your vision for the image.

Graeme,
I like this one the best of the three. It's an excellent image. I agree with Scott though. The only downside I can see to your PP methodology is that it tends to leave a mottled effect on parts of the skin. We talked about this via PM on one of your other recent images and I see the same thing with this one. I would do some healing, dodging and/or clone work on the fill side to reduce this effect. This is simple stuff and, for me at least, would make the photo perfect.

A wonderful composition Graeme. Beautifully done.


EDIT: I changed my mind about liking this one best of the three. I actually think like them all equally.

What lovely eyes! Graeme, I like how you PP this one though I see what Stu is referring to. That can be easily fixed. Well done overall, Graeme!

Stu, agree with you (and Scott) entirely.......... I really am struggling with this at the moment.......... I'm not sure which tools to use........ clone/healing brush/dodge etc.......... which is why they look crap! :biggrin: :biggrin: :biggrin:

neat colors !
Thanks Topher............ how are you dude????? :cool:

Really a fabulous image, Graeme. The skin doesn't bother me at all and it's what I expect from your high contrast style images. Actually, I love the character that it adds. Her eyes just glow using your technique.

The nitpick for me would be a flash of white (a window perhaps?) on [camera left] of the scarf. Or is that a fuzz?

I love this image Graeme...the negative space works so well with the composition of your subject.

May I ask what lighting technique was used?

Great work!
