    Any thoughts on this?

    There was some sunlight that was peaking on her face, is it horrible looking? Is her skin too muddy looking?

    Can we see an unedited photo? I like the shot, but the editing on the face is not great. And although I love high contrast in B&W, I think this maybe is a little much.

    It's a very cute shot, but I agree, the face is way too edited.

    Actually the face wasnt edited(except for a peice of hair), thats the light you are seeing that was shining on her face.. heres the SOOC version.

    Now I see whats up with the face. I do like the color alot and I'm a big B&W fan. I think now it may just be a contrast thing. It's a keeper shot, so i would work with it. Just a quick conversion on my part gave it a softer look. It may give you some ideas. If you want, I can take it off.

    I like the first one. The warmth is nice. Nice job. Did you give it a little Gaussian Blur? And which B&W conversion are you using?
