Forgot to mention, all were shot with the Sigma 24-135mm f2.8-4.5 lens. This has certainly become my favourite lens in spite of its large size and weight.

The 2nd colour version is definitely an improvement.

Good work Ira. I also found the first version a little bit too pink, but your re-edit is fine. Also like your B&W version.....cheers....Don.

Ira,

I do have some critique here to offer. The hair on the right side of the subject lost its detail near the ends and the shadow from her nose on the right side of your subject is distracting as well.

Overall, the picture is nice and the set-up will get results most people will be pleased with.

Pretty nice result: the second one seems better in terms of capturing the colors.

I am really interested in the tech of it. Can you describe a bit the strobes setup? What did you use?

Ira, I found a very cool thread about airbrushing techniques

http://photography-on-the.net/forum/...d.php?t=171753

I tried to apply it to your image, hope you don't mind

(also gave it a slight level bump, to accent the white background a little

The subject does look rather purple to me. I took a stab at doing some color adjustments based on this guide:

I didn't follow the guide exactly. It seemed counterintuitive to do this stuff in CMYK, and I may have overdone it a bit.

I have a bright, high contrast LCD monitor and the original posting looks just fine to me. I believe that what you are correcting for is color variance in your specific display. I think this is born out by the fact that his prints of the original post are coming out fine. I have three monitors on my desk and there are huge differences between the "good" one and the other two. When I post photos I adjust them to look acceptably good on all three monitors. The adjusted version is never what looks best on my "good" monitor, and what looks best on my "good" monitor produces the best and most accurate prints.
