i think ths is a cool shot

comp is cool. i just think it need a little more kick from pp. like enhancing the eyes so they pop out a bit more, a bit of skin work and maybe a tad deeper lighting. i had a quick play, hope you dont mnd

Nice.What do you think of this angle? I hope you don't mind. Her skin tones are brought down a bit.

Pretty model.

thank you all so much. i have to ask, if you don't mind, kenmc, what did you do for her eyes?

if there's a technique you can share, that doesn't take a long time to type out, i'm eager to see what you did. and the skin, looks great. i dind't do much on it, i usually do quite a bit of PP, but i just mainly did raw convert to post. thank so much for the redos, i like them a lot

hey mate

the eyes were very simple.

You can just use the sharpen brush but i find that a little funny.

Duplicate the layer.Do all this work to the top layer. get a freehand lasso toool. draw around the eyes (including the eye brows) and the mouth, Hold down shift i think when making 2 seperate selections. then i selected a feather of around 10pixels. and used the unsharp mask. see the raidisu to about 1.5 i think from mem and set the amount accordingly. I set the cut to around 2 so it didnt sharpen the little dotties.

Zoom in close and delete out the random artifacts that the unsharp mask would have brought up in the eye balls just by using the erase tool. the bottom layer should show through with the clean unsharpened eye balls.

Then there you have it. Nice sharp eye lashes, brows etc. oh yea and enhanced detail in the lips and soft eyes in between.

In refernce to the skin, i used my same old technique, again working on the upper layer, then setting the opacity back a bit so you can still see some of the original skin detials etc.

See here where i explained it to another memeber
