    Hi,

    I'm onto finding a pretty consistant color image that I really like, along with some soft touches I learned from Monty Zucker so....Your input at this point is needed so I can refine what I'm doing.

    Here is an example:

    i think the light is super harsh, i see green cast on her pant leg, there is little detail in the highlights or shadows, its washed out. there is also lots of dead space at the top

    Didnt have time to upload an edit, but if you apply a warming filter, crop the top out a bit, and play with the coloring and levels it turns out decent. Another potential may be the crop at the knees. Usually the rule is to crop in between joints, not at them. Maybe a little tighter or a little wider would look better/

    Thanks guys,

    I cropped and burned it a bit. What do you think now?

    I didn't use a warming filter, I'm still using ps7. Just did some post color stuff and a softening action I made that I learned from reading about monte zucker.

    The light was pretty bad it was about 12:30 here it was the only time available.
