    I dunno, I personally think you sucked the color out of her face. :lol:

    You know, honestly, I think I like the first one more. I'm looking at it on a calibrated monitor, and the new one has a slight green cast while the whites on the first appear more true.

    I love the photo, but as others have said, I think you've taken away the colour in her face.

    I can see what you were trying to do, smoothing out and making the shadows a little less harsh, but it's just made her look more grey/green than anything.

    Lovely shot though :)
