Playing around with different effects and processing. Ignore the background.

Hair detail appears plugged up. It's difficult to ignore that very light background.

Yea.. her collar (cloth, around her neck) is lighter with a more diffuse black than the rest of the shirt /dress.. makes it look like it is the backside of the material. Maybe not..

looks the the material is semi transparent and the collar was folded over on itself to give less transparency.

Less intense.

Too bright on the face.. to contrasty, IMO!

What do you think of this? ( I overdid the eyes, didn't i?). The black bra looks a bit odd under that too...

A darker background would suit this.

I like it but it wasn't the look I was going for. I wanted a more contrasty fashiony look.

Runnah, I see what you are saying but after looking at the others, that first edit looks a little grey to me (skin tone).

Did you full size it?
