Wow - I really like this a lot Shelley... You are a beautiful woman and this is so sensual/sexual... I especially like the high-key look and yet we can see a glimpse of your necklace and water drops on your shoulder. The one little star coming from that one drop near your chin is a nice touch too. I'd like a
16x20 print but my wife'd probably beat me severely...
LOL Im sure you can achieve this same shot with your wife... a little kiss here a honey there...she will melt like butter! LOL
This took me quite a while in PS! I tried different methods...adding grain and such..and of course I HAD to use a PS brush and add the little stars! If you look close you can see 2 on my hoop earring and 2 more on my shoulder..one is barely noticable though
Very nice portrait and I think the little stars add to it. I'm curious as to how your are taking these self portraits, are you using a timer or are you just having someone push the shutter button after you set it up? --lenny
