    Gorgeous PP!! My only crit is that when looking dead on at the pic, the right eye looks a bit whiter than the left.

    Very nicely done.

    Did you consider removing the secondary catch-lights?

    I agree, it is very good editing.

    But this is just a minor thing, it looks like the light is producing a bit of glare on the cheekbone right below the subject's right eye. What did you use for lighting? I think a softbox would help reduce that little bit of glare on the skin.

    But overall, its a great photo. Nice job. :thumbup:

    Looks fantastic! The only thing I would change is mabey a little tweak in curves to brighten it up a bit.
    Wonderful job.

    Great PP!
    I'd personally rotate the photo a little bit so that both eyes are one the same level (right eye is a bit above the left one).
    That and you could perhaps burn away the jacket plastic thing on the left lower corner.

    But thats just little details ;)
