Went out for coffee with the munchkin and a girlfriend yesterday. Shot this quick.
Well done for "quick"! Clean background, no distractions. Good focus on the eyes.
I prefer the first over the second. Her pose in the second seems contrived somehow, in the first she just looks good. Pretty. Nice.
ya the background in #1 is simple, which is a good thing. :thumbup:
Looks good for quick shots. Those eyes are way, way too white for quick shots IMO (especially the first photo). Whites of the eyes should look like that in fashion magazines, if at all.
Your right about the first photo. I did way to much editing there on her eye whites and have been way to lazy to go fix it. It's just for fun though. However, I didn't think the second one was so bad. I didn't even do anything to the whites specifically. All I really did was adjust white balance, exposure...etc.
2nd picture looks good for a portrait IMO. It captures your face better and seperates it from the background where in the first one, it just looks like a simple pic taken with a PS.
Btw, is it me or do you resemble these two:

Wow.. pretty face, beautiful eyes, nice teeth. I would ask her to pose again. For real this time.
Lol I thought it was her! Looked at the avatar kindda looked like her.
Guten TAG. The lighting in that place was great. All natural? or bounce? It's super soft.
1) the hand in front of her chest is distracting to me. The size seems a little distorted or malformed (or the angle), so it tends to pull my attention away from her face, where it should be.
Other than that, I like the photos, especially for casual portraits.
All natural. This coffee shop has an enclosed outside area so the lighting is great. I think this picture was even taken at like around 2pm!
Great pickup. I didn't even notice my first run through.
