    Can others edit my Photos:
    Photos OK to edit
    These are quite stunning I think. You should be proud of yourself and these shots. I might back off just a smidge on the enhancement but otherwise excellent work. How long have you been doing this if I may ask?

    These are great portraits. #3 is my fave, she looks so innocent.

    you are really starting to show improvement jemmy.

    I think #5 is the best, very nice., i also think it would work well in B&W.

    i think you're going for the light, high-key-ish look, but be careful, You've got a couple of blown areas

    I think these are precious...and really show your talent! I was actually going to say that the blue eye enhancement as well as the selective coloring in the b&w's is some of the most "realistic" I've seen. It doesn't look photoshopped at all to me. Sometimes people end up having these big blue circles with no color gradient or depth to the eyes when they try to do color enhancement and selective coloring. You did an excellent job!!

    they could have just appeared after your processing in PS. In which case the originals would be fine to work with from scratch, just keeping an eye on those areas as you do your conversion to B&W.

    Getting familiar with the levels will help you get a good range of tones without blowing out areas

    i suppose you could crop them out also
