Continuing with my series of Alannah, this is a re-work of the first one I uploaded a few weeks back (Alannah 1). I readjusted the colour and texture, tilted the head and cropped closely to pinpoint the beautiful face and eyes of this lovely young model. I hope you like the result.
I am continually grateful for all the comments, critique and advice I have received from fellow members and I am using some of the information offered to improve on my portraiture work. It's good to know that there are many photographers on this site willing to help others and share their knowledge.
Many thanks to all for the lovely comments on all of my recent portraits and to those who have taken the time to upload modifications and suggestions.

Have a great weekend.
Fran xx

Nice modification to the original Fran.
I has certainly improved the image a lot.
Like the closer crop and the angle of the face and the skin colour is much better.
Well done.

Derek

I love what you have done with this Fran - the crop and angle really work so well and the skin tones and depth of detail in the eyes are superb. Beautiful hair colour and textures.

Looks a good result to me Fran. I like that you have filled the frame - such a lovely face - you have captured her skin texture well and I think her hair has a warmer tone than previous.

Beautiful shot Fran and a great improved over the original; but I particularly like the way the slight rotation has made her expression appear wistful
