I think it's a great picture. Did you take it outside or indoors? Nice job.

Very interesting portrait that works great with the tight composition. Did you use alot of PS or is this natural lighting and color ?



Great work

Thanks all. The eye color is hers. I did do some skin smoothing in PS. The shot is outdoor with fill flash.

I think it is a great photograph, and the framing gives it a kind of 'closeness' that you don't often see, even in portraits. It is very communicative. Forgive me if I can't find quite the right expression.

Great work.

Best,

-Ben

that is a beauty, and so is she! i like that it's not the "usual" sort of crop/composition. the color looks great etc.

Nice shot Widowmaker, I like the others like the comp. Exposure looks good, couple of hot spots in the white flowers but not a big deal. The only thing that bothers me is I think you did too much smoothing of the skin below her nose and around her lips. To me it looks odd, take care of that and it would be even better of a photo. Thanks for sharing.

Thanks GoCubs. I added a little noise to the areas you mentioned but they are actaully not terribly far from original. Mainly the removal of fuzz.

Great picture! Beautiful eye color, especially looks great next to the flower. Don't even know what to critique... Maybe I'd refresh a lipstick a little on the edge of the lower lip.
Beautiful model!

Nice new avatar, btw!
