    NoelNTexas,

    I like what you've done with this image. Most of us are tempted to take editing so far that the subject looses too much of the realism and spontaineity. I think you've found the balance here. You've kept enough of the original to reserve its realism. Your model is incredibly beautiful.

    Your signature states that your images are ok to edit. And I hope you don't mind that I experimented with it.....

    The first rendition is the result of using only photoshop (no plug-ins)
    The second rendition is the result of the Neat Image plug-in.
    Which do you like better

    I like your edit, but the green of the eyes is a bit strong. They don't look real.

    Great that we still see her pores for a more natural look. BRAVO! :)

    You are really not supposed to see the pores in a portrait. Despite being natural, the creases in the forhead look out-of-place and tend to draw the attention of the viewer slightly away from the eyes.

    Midnite Jam's first rendition seems the most natural of the bunch but even that requires more work to for example slightly lighten up the dark side of her face around the eye particularly and getting the red out of her eye as well.

    NoelNTexas, Of the three edits, I like yours more because the candid-natural-like quality wasn't edited out. I got a sense that I was looking at a real person rather than a cooky-cutter concoction from a celebrity magazine when I viewed your edit.

    skieur, I deliberately increased the light ratio that you refer to (the dark eye). I wanted to eliminate the flat light appearance in order to produce more of a light-modeling effect that hinted of classic "Rembrandt" portrait lighting. You can google 'Rembrandt lighting' to get an idea of the concept. Also google 'broad lighting', short lighting, butterfly lighting, and paramount llighting. You'll like what you find.

    I added a vignette to emphasize the face. I added catch lights in the eyes to create a light source and establish dimention to the iris. I added a hint of rose tint to her cheek to help eliminate the appearance of flat lighting.

    And if the irises are red, then I need to calibrate my monitor again. I'll check out that red on my other 3 monitors.

    NoelNTexas, If you're interrested, I'll write a tutorial for you. You're lucky to have a natural beauty to model for you.

    Cheers,
    midnitejam
