Thank you Patty. She doesn't come over too often and I must get more photos of her twin sister to balance things out a little!

I don't like the artifacts in her eyes, but it for sure this is a very nice model and a vere good portrait. Plus it really works in b&w.

I know, this is "only" the forum version, but for the print version I'd really start over with the smoothing/postprocessing tbh.
Look again...I listen!

Delightful picture Dawg! I did not realize that the Bigma was capable of working at such a close range. How far away was she from the lens?

Jay
This is a crop but she was about 3-4 feet away when shot. Her cousin Josh in my other post was only 2-3 feet away and no crop. I will post an unprocessed photo for you to see!

Dawg,

The light and texture are just amazing. She is also a beautiful girl and her expression a perfect match for the shot. I also think this is the perfect portrait to render in b&w as the skin texture comes out so silky smooth. I was looking closely at the reflection in her eyes for the source of light. Two windows or artificial? This shot just blew me away.

Mike

Thanks Mike...I don't use a flash much and prefer natural light...The right side of her eye as you see it ...I'm blocking nthe light from outside my porch with my body. The left side where you see the light it is split by a post behind me giving the split light effect!

Good capture. Looks soft overall which is not a bad thing, but the hair detail on her right side (left side as we view it) is really looking like it was smeared.

You may be right. I believe that is due to the shallow DoF. I have no clue of the F stop of the image as it has been stripped of the details.

Dawg,
I like this one (looks zero pp) than the other one
