i know i'm only supposed to post one pic but these are practically the same thing, so here i go, i'm risking gettin a virtual smack on the wrist...





ok ok i know this one is WAY blown out but i was going for a glamour shot and i guess i over did it with the diffuse glow. either way aside from that let me know what you think of these two edits.

Sort of washed out. I like the first one better but it is still harsh light for a glamor shot.

its too much... and you need to unmask around the eyes and lips, etc.. to bring back details.. so do you high key on an adjustment layer and then using a black brush paint back the sharpness around the eyes, lips, chin, eyebrows, etc..

good luck and look forward to seeing what you come up with..

Just FYI "glamour" in the UK means partially naked, bikini at least and probably topless. :-) (Imagine my disappointment.)

The lighting is pretty harsh and unflattering so I think the higher-key one actually works better.
