Default Portrait experiment



My first test for a more glamarous look.
Any suggestions are welcome.

Greetings,
Frank

Hi,
The original is very sharp, I will post that tonight.
I like the dreamy look of a bit blurring in this portrait, but I wondered if it was overdone .

I think it is a wonderful pose and expression. I do however think that from the ear and backwards it is too blurred. I find it a little disturbing and unatural.

Very high compression because it's only used as an example.
But this is the original.

I think you did a good job with the retouch. A little softness and blur with distance is nice for a portrait. There is no logical reason for the chin to be blurred based on distance to lens compared to other elements in the picture though.

The eyes look angry more so in the retouch for some reason.

good capture of the expression

you could make the backround totally black

unsure about the "dreamy" effect

but still pretty nice

I agree with the chin, I will take notice of that one next time, thanks.
