Great detail (as in very nice improvement) in the faces...my only preference would be to see a bit more contrast between the edge of the clothing and white background. As is tho, it is very striking, and has lots of appeal.

This is a nice double portrait in black and white. I agree the motif has to go. Cute maybe but is does distract a bit. It seems a bit on the sharp side too but that could be my monitor.

Regards,

Syd

Thanks for reply everyone I really appriciate.

I was thinking of removing the chair by mayself but waiting for your confirmation.

Considering the cartoon figure....ahh..Ok let start with that but I will loose some time on that...:O

Improvement of the cloth's edges will be speciall treatment...ahhhh again more time on computer...

Thanks to God that I do not have to do anything on the faces.... that would be....mama mia :sad:

Regards Zak

i agree with many of the comments made.. the black and white is definately an improvement, but you need to lose the cartoon and chair, the shirt contrast would work too, otherwise she just flows into the background...

i would recommend a much tighter crop, and perhaps not so much noise reduction. the B&W format works well, but the faces look plastic, unnaturally smooth... maybe something more like this?
