    Hey, Holmes,

    Like that second image. Very nice tone range and love that shallow depth of field. Good shot!
     
  6. Gaylon,

    I absolutely LOVE "insecure!" Well seen, shot and titled!!!! :smile: I would like to see a touch more of brightness in both. Not sure what programs you use, but I'd use either the LR brightness slider (it's such a gentle way to add punch!) or a curves layer. Not much.....just a hair. :smile:

    Thanks for the comments, folks.

    Gretchen, you're right - thank you. Played with both a bit more and finally decided the first image just isn't very good due to the photographer!

    Brought up the second one a little and I do like it better. Here's the new version:

    I shot these raw, processed in NX2, tiff'd to CS2 where I used the Gorman/Holbert action to convert. Bit of levels and I simply used the colour fill opacity slider to make the brightness adjustment.

    Thanks again for the suggestion!
