I'm joining the ranks of 1st portraits. You can tear me to shreds, but leave the model alone please. I wish I knew how you guys brighten/lighten the eyes, but all I did was a bit of the usual - crop, levels, curves, etc. 1 - Okay, she was cold as a cucumber in the begining :neutral:.... 2 - ...and one of the little doggie too (couldn't find a dog smilie). 3 - I think she felt prettier when I suggested a change of tops ... 4 - ...and began to enjoy herself a bit more ... 5 - ...and I had to make a fart joke about my Dad to get her to actually laugh . Thanks for looking and as always, your critiques are welcome.
