    I like the first one. The second has a bit too much of the 'mugshot', straight-on look. And I'm not going to comment on the third :mrgreen:.

    Do you live in Ukraine?

    I like #2 the best. #1 is more like a spur of the moment shot, but I like how the fuzzy hood forms a frame in #2.
    And #3...well...:lol:

    Have you thought of trying these in Black and white? It would help with the contrast some I think, and maybe you could do some interesting shadowy tricks. If I was at home now, Id try it for ya!

    I like the second shot, try it in black and white.

    Cute kids! (OMG did I just say kids? im 27 and feel so old)

    #1 with some color accenting.

    I tried #2 in b&w but there wasn't enough contrast and it came out too gray for my tastes.

    Cute gals. I like to practice, so I gave that second one a shot rather than blabber.

    mark, care to share what method you used to warm that up? i use curves (selectively reduce the blue channel)...but it's not always great looking...

    thanks :)

    I still had it open, so I was going to save it as a PSD for you to look at the layers, but then I had a brain fart and killed the history.

    As I recall, I used a color balance adjustment layer to remove both cyan and blue (added red and yellow) a decent amount.

    And you also fixed her skin, very neat. I loved No.2 anyways but mark's adjustments make it even better. I just fancy 'mug shots' I guess. :lmao:

    i gave it a shot too. hope you dont mind. i further evened out her skin and gave her eyes a little boost of color. then did some level, curve, and color adjustments. but i think the sky is a little too blown out now.
