    I like the shot! but there is one thing I would do. In my opinion I would bump up the contrast more.

    I agree with you. I thought I bumped it up but when I posted it .. It looked dull! Thank you for your comment..

    Her face is out of focus, especially on the left.

    This is going to sound really stupid, but is this a computer painting or a photograph?
    If it is a photograph, I personally feel there has been a bit too much post-processing done to it - however, her eyes look very very sharp and I like the motion of her hair alot and the colours :)

    there wasnt a lot of post proccessing done. All I did was boosted the contrast..( not enough )and sharpened the eyes. Then I sharpened the overall pic.

    its a nice shot...but i have to agree with brittany....the cheeks and neck looked like they were 'smudged'...like trying to fix bad skin or something...just looks funny....

    As soon as Imagecrap is back online, I will post the original pic. My focusing comes out soft in most my photos. I don't know how to make them sharper.

    I think it may have been sharpened a bit too much and it emphasizes the contrast too much.
    It's a good shot though. I like the comp, the crop and the expression.
    Post the original please.

    Stop down the lens, the closer you are to your subject you need more DoF for sharpness overall, a fuzzy OoF portrait is not really any good. H
