    as far as the post processing goes, no, but I'm a little disappointed that part of her breast is cut off on the right side of the frame.

    No, I'm not saying that in a perverted way... I'm saying it in terms of composition :) Pure technicalities...

    I have to say... I like the before better. The second one looks as though you sharpened it to much. The hair looks a little fake and grayed out. Also her right arm has some distortion in it. I'm guessing you removed some freckles from it and then sharpened it.

    you went a bit far, specially because you can see a break from what is smooth and what isn't like in between her eyebrows and the top of her lip.. or maybe I just can't really tell, maybe if you can post them a bit bigger?..

    what do you think?.. do you see what I'm saying?

    I'd crop in more. That pose makes here look really chesty, in a bad way. Your greens are pushing radioactivity. To me, competing with the subject.

    They are screaming at me "look at me, look at me, I'M GREEN!"



    I did a crop, if you want to see what was in my head.

    Hahaha, that's exactly the crop I did. I clone in some green into that top brown line as well. See what you think.

    Do you like it cropped in better? I think it just more flattering.

    Yea I do like it cropped, it does draw you in more to her eyes instead of the green background. And I do agree on the boobs as well! I diffently like the last version a lot better!
