a couple of comments about this photo - first, it seems overexposed, unless you were trying for a "high-key" effect. tone down the exposure some, so there are some shadows to lend depth and dimension to the image. second, it looks like you've perhaps photoshopped her face a a bit... the whites of her eyes don't look natural, and it's VERY rare to see a redhead with freckles on her shoulders and none on her face. the effect is a little disconcerting, and makes the image look overprocessed...

Thr post processing on this mage gives her a surreal/sensual look. . .I kinda like it.

I was going for a high-key effect, so I purposely overexposed the image. It's strange that the whites of her eyes don't look natural in this one, because I didn't touch the whites. I did, however, enhance the iris. Maybe I oversharpened them. And as for the freckles, I know it's weird, but the only place she has freckles is on her shoulders - no where else.

Thanks for the comments, I'll keep them in mind for the next one!

i have commented on thi sshot before but not in c&c

i really like this shot. I think the over exposure compliments the shot. generates great contrast with the hair colour and eyes. Indeed the pp work on the white of the eyes is overdone and simly needs to be done using and adjustment layer then backing up the opacity to suit. you could maybe do a smiliar thing with the face pp work.

comp is very creative and this image really hits you. In a good way that is.



i think its a very well executed shot. touch up the pp work and you have a winner mate

This is actually a different shot than the ones I posted in the people section. It is from the same series, though.

Thank you for the comments, ken!
