Going for.... the "yes, this has work done to it, but it doesn't look fake" look.
Did I do it right?
:thumbup: you left some texture to the skin, so it doesn't look plasticky... yet, her skin still looks wonderful! I like it!
I think its beautiful! Her eyes look so crisp and sharp. It doesn't look like an overly processed photo, it looks natural to me.
best skin cleaning technique I've ever used....and I've used a lot! Thanks!
This is good to hear! Thanks!
I like it, I think you did a fantastic job on her eyes.. I think the highlight on her nose is a bit distracting. And her eyes are so sharp I feel the nose and lips are a little soft in comparison..
It is very well done, particularly considering it is an extreme close-up and even minor mistakes would show up very clearly. Aside from one area, you hit a nice balance between touching up but not overdoing it.
The "highlight" on the nose is washed out and therefore distracting. That is where some further careful postprocessing is necessary to get the skin colour back into that area.
Maybe no contact lenses next time... I am drawn to that, for some odd reason.
Thats exactly what I was thinking too.
wow never noticed them till you said it. Yall have good eyes
It's hard to judge too much on the post processing without seeing the pre-processing. It's difficult to tell what's been softened and what's just out of focus (shallow DOF). That said, the skin does look soft while retaining texture, and doesn't look over-processed to me. In addition to the nose, something that bothers me is that her irises look a little soft, but parts of her skin look super sharp (parts of her temple and cheekbones.) I don't know if these sharp parts are skipped spots in PP, or the parts that are in focus, or both. All in all, I like the treatment. Good job.
Her eyes are actually not in focus... You missed it by couple millimeters...
u shot it unexpectedly beautiful....giving attn to her eyes...though, her face /features are fine.
