    So I am pretty sore today after two days of four hour shoots each. However, here are the results, or least the best of the bunch!

    C&C please! :)

    These are still in the early stages of editing, in fact, if anyone has any tips on adding borders and a watermark, Id love to have it. I had it all automated but I switched to CS recently and lost it all. :(

    Aw man. Stay away from train tracks! My cliche alarm is ringing out of control!

    That aside, I like #1 the best, hands down. Such a great shot. Any chance I could toy around with an original? I don't even care about re-posting.

    OH OH I have a nifty idea for #2! Can I play?

    Alpha,

    Tell me about it. Train tracks weren't my idea.

    And feel free man, let me know if you want the high-res... feel free to edit!

    I wants the highest of rezes.

    I meant #3, not #2.

    What's with #6? You seem big into the hand-on-the-face thing lately. Just experimenting? I mean, it works. But I wouldn't want a whole port full of it.

    Yeah, the thing is, it's not me. Those two models (the last two) hired me for specific shots, and some of them were nearly clones I've done in the past.

    LOL. Well, money is money. Nice work nonetheless. You've gotten about 20 times better than when you first started posting here.

    OMG nailing the skin tone separation without f-ing up the background in #1 is tough!

    I might just have to do a whole series of edits.

    Overall I think they are really good. I love how the cart says unconditional satisfaction guaranteed, nice touch! ;) In #4 I find the wood or whatever on the bottom right hand corner a little distracting. I kind of dig the orange tone in #13 actually, vintagey looking. She looks like a giant in #25!

    Thanks. When we found the cart, and it lined up like that, I was very exciting. Its amazing how sometimes things like that can happen so unplanned, and turn out so well.

    Thanks for the comment about 13, I was certainly going for a vintage tone, but wasn't sure if it came out well.

    And yes, 25 is a bit odd, the whole housewife series didn't turn out like I wanted - and that was the reason we even shot! LOL

    OK. Edits.

    The first one is sort a "normal" edit. I brought out the color separation, added more black eyeshadow, and increased apparent contrast. The colors aren't muted per se, they're just a bit different. I wanted to keep a lot of the original orange cast:

    The second edit is a sort of cross-processed look. Not as much apparent contrast increase, same adding of eyeshadow. Some toying with the color gamut.
