A friend of mine, who is a former model. She posed for me, (out of pity for me..I'm sure) :) Grateful for the practice though. I am trying different processing techniques in Silver EFX pro, all were originally shot in color, then converted. Thanks for looking.View attachment 1647938View attachment 1647939View attachment 1647940

I like the first and last very, very much. The middle one is a bit too yellow for me, but I'm sure plenty others will like it just fine!

I think the processing matches the expressions! To add to Karen's comment on the middle shot: I think that preset is very fitting for her mood, and I would probably desaturate it just a bit.

Thanks for the advice. Is this a better look?

Lovely portraits, Jeff!
Very well done, like @dossy said.
Personally, I'm not a fan of borders like in #1 but that is of course down to personal preferences.

For the second one, I agree with @Mike Buckley.
I would probably take down the strength of the toning a bit but again, just personal taste.

Thanks so much for the comments. Still working/tweaking images. I have downsized the pics a bit....and will repost the original second in a bit. I forgot to downsize orginally. (My apologies)
That said, the images may have changed from orginal post (in processsing/tweaking)

Yes, the middle image in the original post has changed since you first posted. Regarding the image in Post #4, I agree that a very light sepia tint would work well with lower contrast and a reverse vignette.

Just some more tweaking. I don't think it's "there" yet. But I appreciate all the help I'm getting. I'm working on it. Thank you all very much.
