Thanks for the suggestions. I do have Photoshop Elements (installed on a computer that crashed..lol). I am shopping for a new computer (thinking iMac) and will install and learn how to use PS Elements. I did install Picassa on my laptop for now. Thanks again!

I usually get mystified when I see a beautiful woman, but anyway will try a couple of ideas about the pick itself.
  • You can see the focus is on the couch. Lots of detail in that texture, less on your face. Try different combos of aperture, speed, zoom, ISOs, etc. The white shirt is nice but makes the exposition issues somewhat tricky.
  • Your left arm is aiming at the observer, resembling the classic auto pick holding the camera.
  • I would like to see your right hand too. Not just a part of it.
Regards.

Thanks Simple, for the offer.
Thanks Ordo..for the suggestions. I think my right hand was seen (but I had to crop the photo for certain reasons..lol). You're right about the other arm..didn't think of that either. Oh..thanks for the compliment as well!

I like the composition very much. I can see you know how to model. The highlights are a bit blown, like other posters said, but in the end it's a great picture.

Hi, nice portrait but as others have said there is IMO too much contrast in the shot. Don't know if this is the done thing being a newbie here but I have had a little play with your shot using a prog called ACDSee Pro and came up with this.
I altered the contrast and exposure and adjusted the shadows a little, plus sharpened the shot up a bit.
I hope you don't mind Steve.
