    Did you use highlight recovery in #2 and #5 (the outdoor portraits)? I ask because the skin looks a little muddy. In my experience with my own pictures I find when I have overdone the highlight recovery the skin looks off. Backing off the highlight recovery restores the natural look of the skin.

    Nice picture set.

    Nice shots! #1 is my favorite out of the set.
  4. I think you did a fine job on the studio pictures. The outdoor shots are good, but IMO you need to touch up her skin a little bit (not overmuch!!!). Something about the lighting seems to bring out the blemishes in those two shots, esp. the last one. I think it's also a fact of life using modern cameras like yours that can capture so much detail that we will have to be doing more touch-up on these types of shots.

    Nice work!

    PS - I think these belong in the Formal Portraits section... not only are they that, but they are worthy of that designation as well...

    No highlight recovery used in these. I will look at her face again. These are my first go round with the 850.
