Thanks Frenchy - Best case scenario, by next week there will be a photo - its not because they take long to process, its due to complete lack of time.

You've got time to be chatting onforum's during working hours though :G:G:G

Good on ya! It will be worth the wait I'm certain of that from what you've shown us so far. That skin tone really is great the more I look at it (in my opinion).

Good point Steve, but an internet browser minimises alot faster then photoshop does if you know what I mean.

As far as the skin tones, for anyone using Raw Shooter Premium, I lowered the saturation to -99 and pushed the vibrance up until I got this result. It also helped having access to a fully equipped studio with awesome lighting though.

I love her eyes- that's what makes the picture IMO (and that's probably the point). Her nose kinda disappears due to the lightness though

i really like the idea here and i love her eyes in this shot..

keep the close crop, but extend it down enough to get the lips.. which i think are a key element to headshots..

and back off the processing just enough to get a little more detail out of the nose and such, just enough that the outline is a bit more contrasty..

you may also warm up the white balance just a shade..

nice job though, good potential with these, and i am glad you are enjoying rawshooter premium, best converter in my opinion...
