I was playing around with a single strobe and a reflector and came up with the following set. C&C welcome:

1. (Original - no pp)



2. Crop with blown highlights and high contrast



3.



4.

I like #2. I think the smile in #4 makes for an unflattering image. I'm sure her smile is quite pretty, but in the harsh light, the flexing of the muscles in her face causes some odd shadows.

Thanks for the response.. My daughter definitely agrees about #4 - not her favorite at all.

3 is by far my favorite

4 is a cute smirk, but I agree that the odd shadows make the picture unflattering. I'll bet you could clean up the edges of the blown highlights in PS fairly quickly and cleanly. (If I wasn't at work where I don't have PhotoShop, I'd take a stab at it)

I can't disagree with anything that has been said so far. 2 & 3 are both very nicely done, but I like the expression you've captured best in 2.
