Hi,

I really like this shot. It has nice motion and a happy feel to it. Only points I would make...

1) I would clone out the hair that appears to be coming out of her mouth... also maybe tidy up the flyaway hairs on the back of her head?

2) Is this a crop? It may be nice to have a little more space on her left?

Just my opinion but I do like it - the BW is a nice feel too.

Dom

Thanks Dom, much appreciated. Is this any better? I'm still learning Paintshop pro so my editing skills aren't that great yet.

its a pretty good candid.. though i would like it a bit sharper.. and would like her looking more into the frame, instead of out of the frame..

Thanks Dustin, I ran it through Neatimage and its given it very soft edges which I've found is a trait of that software although in fairness, I haven't taken the time to get to know it properly yet. Must admit thatI am beginning to like black&white a lot.

you may skip the neatimage... leave the noise in there as a grain.. maybe add a little more to mimic film grain..

adding grain can add some sharpness and contrast to an image.. which can be quite pleasing in black and white..

just don't overdo it..
