OK, another comment from me (Hope you don't mind). I think you're over utilizing sharpenning on your images. I know it's tempting to shapen the heck out of everything, but be more careful, especially on hair and faces. This is especially important when your model has long, flowing curly hair. Try using selective sharpening on everything but the hair and face. Resist the temptation to sharpen EVERYTHING.

thanks for the feedback, unfortunalety these are unedited other than maybe taking out a touch of yellow, so i must have saturation or contrast or something turned up to hi on the camera, any ideas what that might be. I never mind feedback good or bad, keep it coming, feel free to edit if you feel you can improve.

I would guess that sharpening is turned WAY up. I didn't see what type of camera you use listed in your profile, but on my camera, Nikon D80, I can set the amount of sharpening done within the camera. That would be the first place I would look.

Increasing or decreasing the saturation wouldn't cause the jaggies I'm seeing in the hair - that's usually sharpening. It COULD be caused by contrast set very high, but that's doubtful.

Unfortunately, I've got a LOT of editing to do myself (Senior portrait customers - lots of collages, time intensive) so I won't have time to edit one of your images this week.

Keep up the good work! Experimentation is the key to success.
