    Been awhile since I worked with glowing objects. I have an idea in mind for a future fantasy type project. Think I just about have the process ready. Any comments or suggestions.

    Very cool - maybe a slight reduction of the warmth on her face, and lift the shadow upper RH corner just a tad?

    Thanks. The process looks so easy but the difference between looking right, and not, is a tiny tweak. The first try was not quite enough reflection, the addition of the texture layer probably moved it to much the other way. The images were something I grabbed for a proof of concept, practice session. So, other then the lessons learned, it'll probably be dumped, when I'm done. Shooting with a final image/processing in mind IMO makes a more polished final product.

    So true for much of photography (and art in general). As I've said before, a good photograph is a lot like a women's make up; a lot of time, effort and expertise goes into producing a product where it looks like nothing at all has been done.
