    My wife and I are spending new year's together at home, having a relaxing evening with lots of munchies and drinks. We did a little photo shoot for fun, and after going through the shots, this was one we were both drawn to, so I processed it. Low saturation and cool cool white balance give it the unusual color.

    Thanks for viewing :)

    Stunning, just beautiful. That's really nicely done. I love the soft light, just right. And the rim light on the left is good decision I think. Composition is just right. Man, I wouldn't change a thing. Processing is icing on the cake, great choice. I think your wife's expression of strong sensuality is classy and smart looking. And best of all, this is gonna inspire me to get into the studio this week. Thanks for sharing.

    And Happy New Year.

    The image and processing are beautiful Matt.

    What, if any, processing did you do on the skin of her face?

    Happy New Year everyone, and thank you for your kind comments :)

    Thanks Jazz. I'm glad you like, and also glad it inspired you. I was inspired from your angel transfers, and also your critique on my last series.

    Thanks Hairbear. The stick is a rain stick, a percussion instrument used in Brazilian and lots of other world music.

    Thanks Jemmy :) Of course I'll share tips.

    Clone tool to remove some small blemishes and to blend some areas of skin, and a duplicated layer with a dust and scratches filter at 10 pixels. Opacity lowered on both to probably around 50%.

    Thanks again everyone! I have more pics from this session that I'm happy with, so I'll post them soon. ;)
