    Not sure what I did here. It's been along time since I posted I've forgotten how to do it. Anyway This is a recent shot I took of my daughter in our living room.

    Really a superb shot. What a beautiful young lady!!!! My first reaction was that the whites of the eyes are abnormally white.... but other than that....well done!

    Thanks Ted.
    Thanks Karen
    I think you are right about the eyes . I got a little heavy handed there. Her silver make up makes them lighter as well. Toned them down a little.

    Superb shot. Very well done. I really wouldn't be making any further adjustments to it, unless you want to go super heavy with PP work.

    I liked the eyes on the 1st version but don’t like the head crop

  7. Lovely daughter, lovely image. I'm not keen on the head crop either but the feather boa was an inspiration. There is nothing that spoils a good portrait more than a bare shoulder catching some highlights. Nice work.

    Thanks Randy . I usually don't crop the heads .Thought I would try it . I think it looks more like a accident .I think I need to crop it a little more to make it work better.

    Thanks . Your right about the hot spots .

    Always helps me to get other eyes on a shot .I get tunnel vision sometimes. Head crops ,some people like them , some don't . Me IDK yet . I do think the bigger head crop makes it look a little better. Also cleaned up a couple spots in the background I saw while looking at it.I'm done with this one I think. Geez this is only the first one.

    Hey Barry ,Bailey would not like me to post the original without her blemishes touched up. But the first one is the original crop out the camera with skin touch up and eyes whitened a little. the others are without eyes whitened and a little crop to the head if that helps.
